Deadline Extended for Cloverleaf Day Camps
Each summer, in addition to providing the traditional week of summer camp at one of the five 4-H camping facilities, we offer a few local day camps for Cloverleaf (4th-6th graders) 4-H members. This year, we are offering three activities for these students. The first one is called “Fun and Games” and will be held on Monday, June 5th. Cost for the activity is $20 and will include lunch. 4-H members will enjoy playing games, making crafts, cooking and eating delicious recipes, learning how to make and play their own musical instruments, and challenging themselves with puzzles (like the Rubik’s Cube).
The second day will be “A Day at Jekyll” on Tuesday, June 6th. This activity also costs $20 and includes some activities around Jekyll Island including a day at Summer Waves Water Park. Lunch will not be included on this day, so students can either pack a lunch or carry enough money to purchase lunch in the water park.
The third day is “Trip to Savannah” on Wednesday, June 7th. Cost is $30 and includes lunch, a tour of the Ronald McDonald House, a dolphin cruise around Tybee Island, and possibly (if time permits) some shopping time.
Sign up for these activities is underway. A deposit of half of the total activity fee is due at sign up. The registration deadline has been extended to Friday, April 7th. The balance of the fee is due by Friday, May 12th.
Senior 4-H Conference This Weekend
Coffee County senior 4-H members will be headed to Rock Eagle 4-H Center this weekend to participate in the statewide Senior 4-H Conference. Over 350 senior 4-H members will gather for a motivational speaker, visit with college recruiters, reuniting with old friends and make new friends from all across the state, and enjoying the annual “4-H Prom” as they call it. 4-H members who have attended this event in past years have had a blast and always look forward to going again the following year. I’m sure this year’s group will say the same.
If you have questions about the Coffee County 4-H Club program, or questions around the farm or home, please feel free to contact the Coffee County Extension office at (912) 384-1402. Remember, we are YOUR local connection to the University of Georgia.
