In an effort to provide a unique opportunity for military teens to connect and form relationships with caring adults and other military teens from Kentucky, an idea has been brought forth to host a 4-H Military Teen Leadership Camp for teens from both Fort Knox and Fort Campbell to be held at one of Kentucky's 4-H Camps. With the mission of Kentucky 4-H Camping to improve people through intentional life skill development, this camp will provide a fun, safe, educational bonding experience and will happen through collaboration with local and state partners, research-based methods and programming, service-oriented practices, long-term strategic planning, and play. One of the goals of this program is be able to offer the camp to our military families at no charge as a way to say "thank you" for their sacrifice.
