Reminder: Teen Leader Application Process for Electric Camp and Target Smart Camp

Apr 21, 2017


Daniel Sarver, Extension Specialist

We are approaching the time of year when State Teen Leader Applications for Electric Camp and Target Smart Camp are becoming due to your Regional Office. We know that you will have some very anxious teens and families waiting on the outcome of the application process.

As a reminder, please be aware of the process. The regional deadline to get the State Teen Leader Applications to the State 4-H office is:

Electric Camp deadline is May 1
Target Smart Camp deadline is May 15.

Here is the process, as outlined on the application:

  • STEP 1: Counties submit application to the Regional Office for review.
  • STEP 2: Regional Offices review the application and either approve or deny for submission to the State 4-H Office
  • STEP 3: State 4-H Office committee reviews applications and approves or denies application
  • STEP 4: All applicants are notified of the results

We anticipate receiving many applications, and a committee will be making the critical and painstaking determination of selecting these worthwhile young people to the important role of Camp Teen Leader.

Counties should expect the announcement for Electric Camp by May 18, and for Target Smart Camp by June 1.
