4-H Camp at Camp Victory Camp Counselor applications are now open for youth in grades 9 and older. Serving as a camp counselor is a key leadership activity for many 4-H youth. Camp counselors learn important leadership skills like persistence and teamwork, support younger youth in their learning and help them have an affirming and fun experience, and work with staff to create and lead camp activities.

Youth who are in 6th grade and above and have an interest in agriculture or would like to learn more are invited to become part of the Dakota/Rice Agriculture Education Representative group this year.


County fair is going to be here before we know it. Families are busy preparing in different ways - registering for the classes to exhibit in, working with their projects, thinking about how they can volunteer, etc. There are a lot of pieces to think about and it can be overwhelming, especially if this is a newer part of your life. Some of our seasoned youth and adult volunteers would like to help make this experience a smoother one.
