Camp information for the 2019-2020 year: TBA


Save The Date: June 28-30, 2019

Location: Lakeview Methodist Conference Center near Palestine, TX

Registration: All paperwork is due May 20th to the County Extension Office! Let Lauren Harmon know if you need the paperwork!


4-H members who have completed at least the 3rd grade through 8th grade participate as campers. 4-H members who are 9th to 12th graders serve as teen leaders. This camp is organized and ran by D8 4-H county extension agents, D8 council officers, and the teen leaders. The kids have a lot of fun learning about various 4-H projects, playing games, dancing each night, and the MESSY games on Saturday! Great event for younger 4-Hers to meet their fellow 4-Hers from around the district.

Teen Leaders:

Must have completed the 8th grade to apply. The applications will be posted beginning of May.

 D8 4-H Surge (Leadership Camp)

Save The Date: June 19-21, 2019 

Location: Texas 4-H Conference Center in Brownwood, TX

Registration: Opens May 6-24, 2019 on 4-H Connect

4-H members who have completed at least the 8th grade at the time of SURGE may participate.  The registration fee covers 3 nights of lodging, all meals, program activities, insurance, curriculum, and T-shirts. The attire is school appropriate (casual). Each evening there is a dance and many kids want to dress up. However, there are kids who wear summer clothes and each night is a theme dance so costumes are permitted.

To prepare teen leaders from the 21 counties in District 8 for leadership roles. These roles might be at the county level, or county committees, or their clubs. The hope is that participants will take information back from SURGE and share it with members back in their counties. SURGE is set up to be enjoyable and fun, but there is work too. Many workshops are set up that will require concentration and serious participation. Speeches are delivered for officer elections. We work and we play. Play time is set up with activities that build team work skills and camaraderie in the district.
