The WSU Extension 4-H Youth Development Program will be hosting two opportunities to become a certified 4-H Challenge Course Facilitator in 2018.
A weekday training course is set for Feb. 12-15 (refund deadline: Feb. 1) and a weekend training program is slated for April 28-29 and May 5-6 (refund deadline: April 16). The course is set at the Gibbs Lake Low-Ropes Challenge Course in Chimacum, with instructor Matt Duchow, a certified 4-H Challenge trainer.
This training opportunity, geared toward educators and youth serving professionals, allows participants to experience aspects of the Low Ropes Challenge, practice facilitating portable challenge activities, and understand theory behind how the 4-H Challenge experience can help youth develop important social and emotional life skills.
Cost is $150 which includes materials, daily lunch and the instruction fee. Upon completion of the course, recently certified facilitators have the opportunity to receive a discount on future use of the Gibbs Lake Low-Ropes challenge Course.
Space is limited to 15 people per training. For more information and how to register, visit extension.wsu.edu/jefferson/challenge/.
