4-H offers summer fun
Emily Mote

Need plans to keep children entertainment during summer break? Register your child for Summer Fun with 4-H Day Camps which offer cooking, science and outdoor adventure. 

“This is the first year we are doing Junior 4-H camp as a one-day event,” said Emily Mote, 4-H extension agent. “Traditionally, it’s a week-long, overnight event. This is also the first year for the Mystery of Dairy Day Camp.”

The Mystery of Dairy Day Camp is a three-day, hands-on camp from June 22-24 at Warren County Administrative Offices. Youth in grades 4-5 will spend one day exploring mysterious dairy flavor combinations by cooking up nontraditional grilled cheeses. On the second day, campers will conduct science experiments and create art featuring dairy products. On the third day, campers we will tour the MTSU dairy farm laboratory.

Registration for Mystery of Dairy Day Camp will take place May 24 and is open to the first 10 4-H’ers. Camp fee is $35, which covers transportation and all activities.

Looking for a day camp that offers an outdoor adventure for your child? If so, sign up for Junior 4-H Day Camp. That camp is offered June 9 at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center in Crossville. The camp will give 4-H’ers in grades 4-5 the opportunity to participate in outdoor activities such as zip-lining, canoeing, shooting sports, crafts and more. Camp fee is $60 which covers transportation, lunch, and activities.
