Calling All Middle School Students…Want Adventure and Outdoor Learning? Sign Up For ACE 2015!

Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts are excited to offer Adventure Camp about the Environment (ACE)! The NRDs are encouraging middle school students interested in the outdoors, to sign up for this educational and action-packed camp.  ACE is for students who have completed 6th, 7th or 8th grades in the 2014-2015 school year. The adventure camp is hosted at the State 4-H Youth Camp near Halsey, Nebraska, Sunday, June 14th through Wednesday, June 17th and is organized by Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts (NRDs).

The four-day ACE gives students an opportunity to dive into many different hands-on activities. Each activity educates our youth on Nebraska’s water resources, different soil types, trees in the forest, and range and grasslands. Students will also learn about the state’s wildlife and why it’s important to protect our natural resources.  ACE gets kids outdoors and excited to explore the beautiful natural world around them.

That’s not all! Campers may be seen grinning ear to ear after experiencing other adventurous activities such as tubing, archery, zip lining, launching water rockets, and the legendary water slide!  Campers will get to learn about possible careers in the area of natural resources from professionals who work to strive to help conserve them every day.

Registration for ACE is $190.00 per camper, however, the UNWNRD and many of the other NRDs across the state offer scholarships for the four-day camp to students who live within a District.  Contact your local Natural Resources District to see if assistance is available.  Families are encouraged to sign up early because space is limited and the registration deadline is May 31, 2015.

ACE is sponsored by Nebraska’s NRDs and Nebraska Association of Resources Districts Foundation.  Nebraska’s NRDs have partnered with several organizations to help make the camp a success including Nebraska National Forest, Bessey Nursery, Nebraska Game & Parks Commission, Nebraska Forest Service, Nebraska State 4-H Camp, Hooker County Turner Youth Foundation, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, United States Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Services. To find out more information about ACE or to get a copy of a registration form, contact your local NRD, visit www.nrdnet.org or find us on Facebook at Adventure Camp about the Environment.
