4-H and The Nice Center Launch Virtual Entrepreneurship Camp
North Dakota students ages 13+ are welcome to register for the free July 27-30 virtual camp.
4-H is “the largest and the only research based youth organization in the state.” North Dakota State University’s own Extension conducts the program in every county in the state. As noted on their website, “4-H provides hands-on, real life experiences through projects, activities, and events”
With this focus, 4-H is a natural partner for The Nice Center. This summer, we are excited to offer our first-ever Nice Camp in collaboration with 4-H. The virtual camp is free and is called Nice Idea: Innovation and Creativity in Your Community Camp.
The camp runs from July 27th to July 30th from 10 a.m. to noon each day for campers ages 13+. Anyone can participate, even if you are not currently a 4-H member. Register below.
What to Expect
The Nice Camp will teach campers how to create new ideas and encourage them to use their creativity to improve their community.
Camp starts with each camper receiving a Nice Box in the mail, filled with supplies. Using these materials, the campers will have one challenge each day. They will break into small groups led by two mentors. They will build solutions using their Nice Box and share ideas and collaborate with their fellow campers via Zoom video conference.
At the end of each session, the entire group will get back together to see what solutions the students were able to come up with.
On the final day of camp, the students will receive a North Dakota challenge – a problem facing many North Dakota communities that our students can help solve. They will use the skills they have developed during the camp to create their very own solution that could be implemented in their respective communities.
Why Nice Camp is Awesome
We are excited to pursue our vision of Entrepreneurship for All by training young people to use creativity to solve problems. What is even more exciting is that they will meet and work with campers and mentors from across the state. In this way, Nice Camp builds an early network for these aspiring entrepreneurs, while giving them the skills and experience they need to take action.
