Service Project

There are so many ways you can grow into great leaders and we want you to investigate all of the possibilities! Rec Lab will help you develop your investigative skills, learn how to crack the code of leadership, discover some trade secrets, and be an accomplice to personal development. But well-rounded detectives don’t just help themselves! For our community service project, we would like each district to assemble 50 of the following travel-sized items and bring them to Rec Lab to be assembled into Blessing Bags at Rec Lab to help the less fortunate in our community:


Future Rec Lab Locations

By rotating around the state and hosted by a 4-H district each year, this event also provides youth and volunteers an opportunity to travel and  experience locations that may be very different from their home county. The camp like atmosphere and hands on activity allows for a fun and laidback weekend to create lasting memories.
