2015 Rabbit Camp

You are invited to the 8th annual 4-H rabbit camp.  This camp is open to 4-H members and potential 4-H members (you do not need to have a rabbit to attend). Cloverbuds are welcome all day Saturday.

Rabbit Camp will be from Friday, March 6th to March 8th.  In addition to showing their rabbit(s), campers will have an excellent opportunity to experience what goes on behind the scenes at a rabbit show.  Workshops will include showmanship, judging, records, interviews and creative design and how to compete on the State & National level.   Our goal is to meet and challenge every individual.  Formal workshops will end Saturday evening following, dinner, awards and clean up. 

Only those that are interested in Rabbit Judging will be staying Saturday night and will practice giving demonstrations, reasons, and knowledge bowl. Sunday morning will finish up with a Judging meet.

We need your expertise. If you excel in some area, please offer to help us with a class. We have classes for the very young beginners to the senior 4-Hers, so any and all help is appreciated. Please feel free to call Raejean at 970-946-4130 or email her at riegelrabbit@cs.com.

 All meals are provided. 4-H members and chaperons’ will be sleeping at the fairgrounds. Bring your sleeping bags, air mattress and cots.

 We encourage and welcome parents to come, stay, learn, help and share!

 4-H member $50.00             2nd child $40.00                    Adults & Cloverbuds $20.00 (to cover meals)
