Summer fun with 4-H
Placeholder Image

No plans for summer break? 4-H offers plenty of summer activities for all youth. Day camps are a hit and are offered in the areas of cooking, science and gardening.
This year we are highlighting Jr. Master Gardener Camp. The three day hands-on camp will be held at the Tennessee State University Nursery Research Center June 14-16. Youth in fourth and fifth grades have the opportunity to meet a plant pathologist, design their own fairy garden, and learn how fungi grows from a local mushroom producer and other fun activities. Space is limited so be sure to contact the Extension Office as soon as possible to find out more information.
Perhaps you are looking for a week-long adventure for fourth-, fifth- or sixth-grade youth. If so, join us at Junior 4-H Camp. This camp is June 6-9 at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center in Crossville. This modern facility offers an Olympic-size pool with a 125-foot water slide complete with diving boards. In addition the camp offers activities such as zip lining, fishing, canoeing, kayaking and shooting sports.
Other activities include a wildlife center, craft houses and two adventure challenge courses. The registration and payment deadline is May 15 so be sure to register soon.
4-H welcomes everyone in grades 4-12.  For more information on programs offered, contact 4-H agents Shay Davis and Emily Mote at 473-8484.
