Gear up for Camp Angus and Register Today
Registration is now open for National Junior Angus members to attend Camp Angus, August 4-6.
In true Angus fashion the show must go on. With personal development and community building for young people being a core motivation among the National Junior Angus Association and the American Angus Association®, Camp Angus became the natural alternative to other leadership opportunities that had to be canceled. Registration for Camp Angus is open July 2-14, 2020 for the conference to be held August 4-6, 2020 in Nebraska City, Nebraska.
“Amid the difficult decision to cancel Raising the Bar and LEAD, we still wanted to provide a leadership opportunity for junior Angus members,” said Madeline Bauer, American Angus Association® events coordinator. “The goal of Camp Angus is to focus on personal leadership and character development to help further the next generation of leaders.”
With registration limited to 100 participants, time is already ticking, and it’s important to register before spots fill up. Camp Angus will be held at Lied Lodge in Nebraska City, with a registration fee of $150. The conference is open to NJAA members ages 14 and older; to register now click here.
At the conference juniors will hear from industry-leading professionals, National Junior Angus Association Junior Board Members and Angus Association staff on topics ranging from team building to figuring out your “why” and of course, the Angus industry. Be sure to pack an open mind, an eagerness to learn and desire to make new friends!
Participants may begin arriving at 1 p.m. Tuesday, August 4, and must be at the lodge by 3 p.m. Participants may begin departures after 10:30 A.M. on Thursday, August 6. Please book flights starting at 12:30 p.m. or after to ensure enough time to get to your flight. Although traveling by car is recommended, those choosing to fly should book flights into Epply Airfield (OMA) in Omaha. For those who are flying please send flight details to email@example.com so shuttle arrangements can be made, which will be an additional $70 for a round trip, participant is responsible for payment.
Participants should come prepared with a mask to wear indoors in the public areas of the hotel. Participants do not have to wear a mask, however, it is highly recommended and the hotel will have masks on site for use.
