LLNRD Camp Scholarships Are Available For Students

The Lower Loup Natural Resources District is offering scholarships to students living in the NRD to attend the 2022 Adventure Camp about the Environment (ACE) or the 2022 Nebraska Range Youth Camp.  ACE Camp will be held June 26th through the 29th at the State 4-H Camp at Halsey and Range Youth Camp will be held June 6th through June 9th, 2022 at the Nebraska College of Technical Agriculture in Curtis.

ACE Camp is sponsored by Nebraska’s Natural Resources Districts while Range Camp is sponsored by the Nebraska Section of the Society for Range Management, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the University of Nebraska’s Cooperative Extension Service and Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources.

The Lower Loup Natural Resources District provides the financial support for campers living within the NRD’s boundaries. Depending on the number of applications, scholarships of up to $100 are available to students who make a formal request for assistance from the NRD. Written requests for financial assistance must be made by June 10th for both camps.

ACE Camp is open to students who are completing the 6th, 7th, or 8th grades who want to learn more about natural resources and have a camp adventure.  Range camp is open to students who are at least 14, but not over 18 years old by October 1st and provides an education in rangelands and rangeland management.

The fee for ACE Camp is $235 and for Range Camp, the subsidized cost is $75.00. Lower Loup NRD scholarships will cover $100 of the ACE Camp costs and the entire $75 cost of range camp.  Funds are awarded following the successful completion of the camps.
