In response to that tragedy, the Iowa 4-H Foundation committed to constructing a tornado safe room at the Iowa 4-H Center in Madrid to protect campers in the event of severe weather. The facility was officially dedicated on July 1 following the completion of construction this past fall. 4-H supporters came together to celebrate this space and experience camp at the Iowa 4-H Center.
