Don’t miss the opportunity to have a GREAT adventure with 4-H this summer at 4-H Summer Camp! This educational camp is a 5-day, 4-night adventure for 4th-6th graders (of the current school year). Campers enjoy interactive recreational activities such as swimming, canoeing, archery, volleyball, line dancing, arts and crafts, and much more. Camp participants have opportunities to enjoy the outdoors and learn about getting along with others, being part of a group, and appreciating different interests and backgrounds. While at 4-H Camp, campers select an educational track in which they participate in fun activities each morning that are focused on that area. In the evening, campers enjoy free time, which includes hanging out with new friends at the dance, movies, swimming pool, or arts and crafts building.
