4-H Summer Fun – Second Camp July 14

— Written By Donna Tulley and last updated by

In spite of unseasonably warm temperatures, the first 4-H camp of the summer started out ‘cool’. We watched basil seeds perform their ‘magic’. After learning a few basic facts about plants, participants had fun creating a project they could take home. They played in the dirt, drew pictures, painted and had more fun. Camp was an opportunity for several young people to experience using their hands and tools to create a fun project with lasting memories. As youth worked together and made new friends, they also developed new skills and knowledge they could use to enhance their lives. What is your favorite first memory of building something on your own?

Thank you to our partners for making this camp possible: Home Depot, Mountain Valley Building Supply, Owle Containers, Clay County Farm Bureau Women’s Auxiliary and Ingles Markets. A special thanks to the volunteers who assisted campers with their projects and helped provide a safe and friendly atmosphere.

On July 14, a second camp for 9-14 year olds will be held. Pre-registration and payment is required by July 7. We are planning another full day of fun so hurry in to the Extension office to register! You may also call 828-389-6305 or email donna_tulley@ncsu.edu for more information.
