Texas Water Camp

The 17th annual State Youth Water Camp will be held at the George and Opal Bentley 4-H Center in Monahans, Texas. This year's camp will take place July 12th – 16th.

The objective of the 5-day event is to help older youth, throughout the state, become aware of current water issues and appreciate the implications of agricultural, industrial, municipal and home water use on water quality and supply.

The camp features field trips, tours and hands-on group project work. While time is made available for recreation, the camp focuses on water issues, quality and conservation education.

This year, 15 boys and 15 girls are being invited to attend camp from all across the state of Texas. Participants must be of high school age and have an interest in water quality and conservation.

Students in grades 9-11 who live in one of the four water conservation districts of the cooperative are eligible for our scholarships to Texas State 4-H Youth Water Camp. Please email the Education Coordinator at if you are interested in attending.

More information about the camp, including a video of activities at past Water Camps and application forms, can be obtained at the Ward County website at Once there, click on the link for "Youth Water Camp".
