Summer camps will begin on June 6 with a “Going Green” 4-H Daycamp. If your child has a green thumb, or would like to have a green thumb, this is the right camp of choice. Youth will learn basic plant science, container gardening, pollination, crafts and much more. Perhaps your child may want to learn a new life skill, such as sewing.
A “So Easy to Sew” daycamp, which will be held June 13-15, will teach basic sewing skills, and campers will complete a beginner sewing project.
Learning to make healthy food choices, balanced with proper exercise, is the theme for the 4-H Healthy Heroes daycamp on June 21 and 27. Campers will make a variety of healthy snacks and enjoy fun and games to make each one a 4-H Healthy Hero.
The 4-H Bug Club Daycamp July 5-6 will allow youth to explore the amazing world of insects.
For the girl or boy who loves science and all things in nature, 4-H Discovery Camp, July 19-22, is a great choice. Each day will bring a new project, from rockets to raccoons, and many things in-between.
Rounding out the month of July, a 4-H20 Enoree River Adventure Camp will be held July 26-28 at Musgrove Mill Historic Site. This camp will connect kids with nature through water chemistry studies, bug hunts, nature hikes, canoeing, and much more.
Also, summer just would not be the same without an overnight camping trip, complete with campfires, cookouts, canoeing, swimming, fishing and lots of hands-on 4-H activities and crafts. This year, the annual overnight camp, 4-H Camp Wild, will be June 28-30 at Chester State Park.
4-H daycamps offer something for everyone, so this summer, give your child fun, friends, and memories – the 4-H way! For more information visit the Union County Clemson Extension Office or call (864) 427-6259.
