4-H SURGE Camp Items

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

Registration: Opens May 6-24, 2019 on 4-H Connect (Must upload release form on 4-H Connect & pay)

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.
