Tri-Basin NRD Offers Scholarships to ACE Camp

Tri-Basin Natural Resources District (NRD) and Nebraska's Natural Resources Districts are excited to offer Adventure Camp about the Environment (ACE) again this year! The NRD encourages middle school students interested in the outdoors to sign up for this action-packed camp. ACE is for students who have completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grades in the 2018-2019 school year.

ACE is held at the State 4-H Youth Camp near Halsey, Nebraska, from Sunday, June 16 through Wednesday, June 19. It's organized by Nebraska Natural Resources Districts.

Fees and registration are $215.00 dollars per camper. Tri-Basin NRD is offering up to six scholarships for students who live in the district and want to attend the camp. For information on Tri-Basin's scholarships, visit www.tribasinnrd.org or also available at NRCS offices in Minden, Elwood, and Holdrege. The scholarship application deadline is April 22, 2019.

The four-day adventure camp gives students an opportunity to dive into many hands-on activities. Activities educate our youth on Nebraska's water resources, soils, trees, and grasslands. Students will also learn about the state's wildlife and why it's important to protect our natural resources. ACE Camp gets kids outdoors and excited to explore the beautiful world around them.

Campers may get a chance to experience other adventurous activities such as tubing, archery, zip line, water rockets, and the legendary water slide. Campers will get to learn about careers in the area of natural resources from the professionals who work to conserve them each day.

ACE is sponsored by Nebraska NRDs and Nebraska Association of Resources Districts Foundation. Nebraska NRDs and the NARD partnered with several organizations to help make the camp a success including Nebraska National Forest, Bessey Nursery, Nebraska Game & Parks Commission, Nebraska Forest Service, Nebraska State 4-H Camp, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, and United States Department of Agriculture-Natural Resources Conservation Service.
