Please note that this weekend is open to mentees who are 8 to 19 years of age by July 21, 2017, per 4-H overnight policy standards. Staff and mentors in attendance must have completed a volunteer screening process through their mentoring program which includes a criminal background check. This weekend is designed for mentoring program matches to participate together. Mentors and mentees must sign up for the same workshops. Peer mentors must attend sessions with their chaperone. Per the MSU Extension overnight housing policy, youth will be bunked separately from their mentors and supervised by designated floor monitors. Adult mentors and volunteers will be housed in same gender pairs, two per room. If you have a roommate preference, please include this on your registration form.
