Lodging, meals and conference materials
Not primarily. The building has a large dormitory, dining halls and conference rooms. There are dormitory-style rooms and some three-bed rooms within the same facility—and yes—the showers and other facilities are all indoors. The camp has cross-country skis and snowshoes available. There is a frozen lake out front and a hill for snow tubing. If you prefer to stay warm, sitting by the fireplace is another popular pastime.
Come when you can. We try to have a variety of activities to accommodate people arriving throughout the evening.
This is an opportunity to meet other leaders, start new friendships and renew old ones. Sessions and speakers change every year. Some feature new friends. The horse library is always set up, giving you a chance to view tapes and the other materials without having them shipped to you. Many of the 4-H state horse project development committee directors attend, giving you a chance to talk to committee chairs and directors in person. Roundup also gives youth and adult leaders a chance to teach and share with others; an important part of the 4-H model. You may choose to use some of the time for reflecting on projects.
Asking for a chaperone for all youth simply means that we are requesting that there be a responsible adult designated for each participant. The adult must be on site at the conference at all times and is responsible for the conduct of the youth. The adults and the youth do not bunk together. They do not have to attend sessions together. We are simply asking for an adult to be present and responsible for youth attending.
