2019 4-H Teen/Tween Retreat
Calling all 6th-11th graders! We are excited to announce our first ever Tween & Teen Winter Retreat being held at Camp Cody in Freedom, NH. Join us for a time to come meet new 4-H Friends and have some 4-H fun as you sharpen your leadership skills!
The theme of this year’s retreat is “Expanding your Horizons”, encouraging tweens and teens to explore ways to grow themselves as leaders, ultimately enabling them to reach beyond their communities to make an impact. Tweens in grades 6th- 8th will participate in a workshop track that focuses on Junior Leadership skill development while 9th-11th graders will work on enhancing their career development skills, preparing them for experiences such as the Marketing You program and InnovaTeen, a new teen grant opportunity.*More information on InnovaTeen and Marketing You can be found on the attached documents.
Along with workshops, there will be time to for all to enjoy their surroundings and have a great time with friends, new and old. The retreat planning committee made up of State Youth Leadership Team members and 4-H staff have worked together to coordinate activities, workshops, a special banquet dinner, dance, and a choice of an activity on Sunday. Youth will have the option to choose between snowshoeing, ice fishing, ice skating, sledding, or arts and crafts indoors (so pack to play outside!)
