Mention “summer camp” to the YEI! guys and gals, and you’ll hear animated conversation and recollections about the many activities that take place every year at the Harold and Mitzi James 4-H Camp and Outdoor Learning Center at Mingus Springs! This yearly event is a true highlight of the summer season featuring outdoor recreation of all kinds. If you’ve been a supporter and fan of YEI! for any length of time, you know how much work is put into making summer camp more extraordinary each year. Your camp-specific gifts help fill out the menu, buy camp craft supplies, support the long drive atop Mingus Mountain and supply lots of Frisbees and whiffle balls! Our new hosts, The James Family and the University of Arizona, have done a great job with solar applications and road improvements! We couldn’t do it without our dedicated supporters, staff and volunteers. Thank you!
