Youth ride into one-of-a-kind learning experience on 4-H Wagon Train. To help connect youth with elders and families in a diverse community, OSU Extension 4-H staff and volunteers developed 4-H Wagon Train, a residential summer camp that engages underserved, under-represented youth and families in real-world learning opportunities. A dedicated team of 4-H volunteers set out on 80- to 90-mile Wagon Train Treks every summer. These nine-day wilderness experiences, combined with daily doses of problem-solving and group decision-making, provide the learning and growing opportunities of collaboration and cooperation.
