This popular program fills up fast, and spots are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. No spots will be held without received payment in full. 4-H members must be re-enrolled for the year in 4HOnline at time of registration to be eligible for the 4-H member prices! Because extra insurances are provided, proof of a hunter’s safety certification is not required for this program.

Registration is due by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, December 30th, 2021. No late registrations will be accepted! However, walk-ins are welcome on the first day of the program for any available spots.
