BROWNWOOD -- 4-H members ages 13-19 will have an opportunity to hone their leadership skills during several 4-H programs at the 2014 Teen Leadership Retreat Jan. 10-12 at the Texas 4-H Conference Center at Lake Brownwood.
“The Teen Leadership Retreat will have 4-H volunteers, 4-H specialists, and college professors conducting hands-on educational workshops with 4-H members from throughout the state,” said Mark Carroll, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service 4-H and youth specialist and conference center program director. “This year’s program will focus on increasing knowledge and skills in five 4-H project areas -- entomology, fashion, consumer decision making, dance, and wildlife habitat.”
The retreat will begin with registration from 7-9 p.m. Jan. 10, followed by a general orientation, adult chaperone meeting, dance, and vespers. Jan. 11 activities start at 7:30 a.m., and include a flag ceremony, breakfast, and opening assembly. Much of the day will be devoted to concurrent sessions related to the five featured programming areas, along with team activities and an evening dance. Jan. 12 activities will begin at 7:30 a.m. with a flag ceremony and breakfast, followed by cleaning out the dorms prior to departure at 10 a.m.
Registration is $115 for youth and $80 for adults, which includes two nights’ lodging, four meals, snacks, and all program supplies. To register, visit http://texas4hcenter.tamu.edu. Registration deadline is Tuesday, Dec. 31.
