Overnight Camp

Ages: 14-18 (incoming 9-12th grade students)

Fee: $420, pay what you can, or free!

 

Every young person deserves to experience life under the stars, the taste of pancakes in the morning, and the smell of dew on pine trees along the walk with new friends to the biggest zipline they could possibly imagine. So Rabble Mill and Nebraska 4-H are inviting incoming 9-12th grade students from every Nebraska city and small town to Good Living Camp — a 5-day, overnight, outdoor leadership camp at the State 4-H Camp in Halsey National Forest, where adventure, leadership and cultural immersion collide to create unforgettable memories, and lifelong relationships. 

All Nebraska high school students are eligible, and invited to attend Good Living Camp. While space is limited, no camper will be turned away due to lack of funds.
