Greetings Florida Water Adventure (T.R.A.I.L.S.) Volunteers, Parents, and Teens,

The University of Georgia 4-H program has partnered for almost ten years to host the Florida Water Adventure Camp series.  We have been fortunate to work with outstanding partners at USDA-NIFA and Purdue University who provided funds from the Office of Secretary of Defense-Military Community and Family Policy for hundreds of campers during the past decade.  Some changes of interpretation and logistical challenges within the Department of the Air Force prevent this partnership with University of Georgia in 2020 to provide this phenomenal camping opportunity.

While it will not recreate the same incredible experience, the University of Georgia is providing two camping opportunities for military teens with the funding partners at USDA-NIFA and Purdue University.

We anticipate hosting two camps through the Military Teen Adventure Camp funding in 2020.  The dates are listed below though the grant funding has not yet been executed.  We encourage past volunteers and campers at the Florida Water Adventure Camp to consider these two options or others that may be available through the Military Teen Adventure Camp program.

Military Teen Adventure Funded 2020 Dates:

Joint Reserve Component Teen Leadership Summit – June 14-19, 2020, Dahlonega, Georgia

Islands Military Teen Leadership Summit – July 12-17, 2020, Jekyll Island, Georgia

Registration

Full registration information will be available soon, as the grant funding is executed. Apply at the Georgia 4-H Event Registration website

Former Volunteers and Parents:

We are in need of volunteers at both the Joint Reserve Component Teen Leadership Summit and the Islands Teen Leadership Summit. Volunteers arrive one day early along with their children (if applicable) who are attending the summit. Volunteers serve as cabin chaperones, participate in programs, and provide risk management measures. Volunteers are funded to attend. Please reach out to milcamps@uga.edu if you have questions and to apply.
