Paving the Way to a New Destiny (6/9/2015)

Paving the WayThanks to all for your many, many contributions in transforming the North Dakota 4-H Camp for the future. After last fall’s conference when the Paving the Way campaign was launched, many donations have been received and activities have occurred. You can track progress towards the $400,000 campaign goal at http://www.ndsu.edu/4h/camp/camp_renovation/. (The $400,000 goal is targeted for summer 2017, which is the 50th anniversary of the Camp.)

I’m grateful to everyone who stepped up for this campaign.

  • The challenge of Extension associations to each other and their gifts
  • The gifts of individual Extension staff and county offices
  • The donations of ND 4-H Foundation board members
  • The gifts of all ELT members in response to my challenge

If you haven’t heard, a Bucks for Bunks Challenge was also launched for county councils and clubs to assist with buying new bunks. By the end of May, 22 4-H county councils, a fair association, and Jr. leaders council, and 15 4-H clubs have responded to the challenge. Thanks to their donations.

These gifts total over $90,000 to date. This is great, but we don’t have everything funded yet. There’s more work to be done. Please consider a donation if you haven’t done so yet. Also, 4-H Foundation board members are still contacting 4-H councils for the Bucks for Bunks Challenge. Please help them with connections if asked. Larger gifts are also still being sought. If you have suggestions in this regard, please let , ND 4-H Foundation director, know.

In addition to the Paving the Way campaign, Extension staff have devoted amazing efforts in prepping the Camp for the season. You have seen these updates and details in Brad Cogdill’s ND 4-H News email.

All of your efforts are so valued because 4-H is a one of the strategic directions for NDSU Extension, and camping is an important part of 4-H.

Thank You!

Chris Boerboom, Extension Director
