Beginning in mid-February, UCCR will begin management of the 4-H Resource Center in Madrid, Iowa. The site is in the Des Moines River Valley and is 22 miles from Ames, the home of Iowa State University. The site offers 1100 acres of land which includes 5 villages consisting of cabins, lodges, meeting rooms, and a variety of recreational opportunities.
The 4-H runs plenty of summer programming at the site with their Camp programs. We will be working to bring back the use of the shoulder seasons as the camp has only been open in the summer months the last few years. The 4-H Foundation owns the facility and we are excited to bring our management experience to this site.
