ACE Camp combines natural resources and summer fun | Local
LINCOLN — Whether it’s a reptile wrapped around a wrist or a refreshing swim in the Middle Loup River, Environmental Adventure Camp (ACE) has something to offer this summer. The Natural Resource Districts (NRD) of Nebraska is now accepting registrations for ACE Camp June 26-29 at the State 4-H Youth Camp near Halsey.
The 23 NRDs of Nebraska encourage middle school students interested in the outdoors to sign up for this action-packed, educational camp. To be eligible, students must have completed sixth, seventh, or eighth grade in the 2021-2022 school year.
The four-day adventure camp offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in different hands-on activities focused on natural resources. Sessions educate youth about Nebraska’s water resources, wildlife, soil, trees, range and grasslands, technology and more. ACE Camp takes students outdoors to explore the world around them.
Campers also have the option of river tubing, archery, ziplining and more. Expect students to gain a better understanding of possible careers in natural resources by learning from the professionals who work to conserve them every day.
