Just as campers are in the thick of things, National 4-H Headquarters has selected the 4-H Great Lakes and Natural Resources Camp as the August Program Spotlight for the Programs of Distinction home page (http://www.national4-hheadquarters.gov/about/pod.htm).
GLNR camp is going on right now on the northern shores of Lake Huron in Presque Isle, Mich. The camp fosters teen leadership and learning through natural resource-based recreation and research-oriented field trips. GLNR camp was recognized in 2009 by USDA and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service with their Program of Distinction award, so it’s no surprise that National 4-H Headquarters would choose it to highlight this month. Our Michigan State University Extension 4-H GLNR camp deserves its place in the national spotlight!
