Rec Lab will be hosted by District 2 in Chester on March 22-24, 2019.Youth participants must be 13+ as of October 1, 2017 and Adult chaperones must be as least 21 years of age.

This event provides an opportunity for youth and adults to enhance their leadership, communication and team building skills in an action packed and interactive setting. Rec Lab programming is designed to provide participants with tips and tricks for being a better club, camp and community leader.

By rotating around the state and hosted by a 4-H district each year, this event also provides youth and volunteers an opportunity to travel and  experience locations that may be very different from their home county. The camp-like atmosphere and hands on activity allows for a fun and laid back weekend to create lasting memories.

Contact your MSU County Extension office for information how to register for this event.
