4-H Teen Leadership Retreat set for Jan. 4-6
BROWNWOOD -- 4-H members ages 13-19 will have an opportunity to hone their life skills during several 4-H programs at the Teen Leadership Retreat Friday through Sunday, Jan. 4-6, at the Texas 4-H Conference Center on Lake Brownwood.
This year’s program will focus on increasing knowledge and skills in five 4-H project areas -- robotics, fitness challenge, dancing, “Bubbles in Food,” and a veterans service project.
Mark Carroll, conference center program director, said this year’s veterans service project will be to make fleece blankets for injured or disabled veterans and then to deliver them to a veterans facility in the area.
He said the fitness challenge provides youth the opportunity to compete in fun physical activities while also measuring their knowledge and skills in the areas of sports nutrition, physical fitness, and careers associated with fitness.
Individual registration is $105 for youth and $70 for adult chaperones. Fees include two nights’ lodging, four meals, snacks, and program fees.
Each county sending 4-H youth to the retreat must provide adult chaperones for the weekend.
Online registration is currently available through Friday, Dec. 28, at
