RENO — University of Nevada, Reno Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program is looking for adult volunteers to chaperone the program’s summer camp planned for July 9 -16 in South Lake Tahoe.
Chaperones will provide leadership and guidance to campers ages 9-12 who are from Washoe, Douglas and Storey counties and Carson City. In addition to helping to run the camp’s activity centers, games and programs, chaperones are there to support the physical, mental and emotional health of campers.
Extension officials said chaperoning is a good way for adults looking to become more involved with 4-H to get started.
“This is great opportunity for those looking to become a 4-H leader and mentor, and for college students working toward careers with youth,” Sarah Chvilicek, Extension 4-H Program manager, said. “Chaperones get to volunteer at the beautiful camp facility while engaging with the campers in activities and workshops. Past chaperones have reported finding it to be a very rewarding experience.”
Chaperones must be 18 years or older by the start of camp and must complete the process to become a 4-H volunteer which includes fingerprint background check and registration materials. Several additional trainings and meetings before the camp dates are also required.
Chaperones also receive free food and lodging during the camp.
