Last September was year #4 of Camp YouCan and it was a great success! There were over 30 campers; some who have come all 4 years and some who joined us for their very first time. For 3 nights/4 days campers enjoyed trying new activities such as archery, fishing, boating and fun team games! Campers loved getting a chance to try the ropes course and cheered each other on while gliding across the zip line..
Camp YouCan will be held in the summer this year- June 9th - 12th and at a new place; the beautiful Eastern Nebraska 4-H Camp located between Lincoln and Omaha. The cost for camp this year is $125 per camper.

"The best part of the day I think for me with the kids was doing the rock wall and seeing the faces on the kids when they accomplished it."
"This was one of the best things I have ever done. Not only am I a person that absolutely adores children.. but I love the Camp and EVERYTHING that it stands for."
