Brunswick County 4-H, sponsored by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, will offer a variety of activities, field trips, and day camps for children through the “Super Heroes in Training” 4-H Summer Enrichment Program. This summer is full of fun and educational activities for youth to participate in, beginning June 18.
New summer programs this year will include an overnight trip to the aquarium at Fort Fisher. During Super Farm Days, youth can go horseback riding, visit local farms and visit the N.C. State University’s research lab and dairy, and tour the food science department and see how Howling Cow ice cream is made.
This year will feature the Super Shamrock Chef Camp Week, ending in a cooking competition. Super Soaker Science Week will visit Fort Caswell for some kayaking and exploring marine life.
Camps are available for children ages 5-8 (Cloverbud Camps) and ages 9-12. Complete details of the program, as well as enrollment forms, are available now through the 4-H office or on its website.
Members of the 4-H staff are available to explain the summer programs and TiLT (Teens in Leadership Training), its summer fun camp for counselors. Register through the Cooperative Extension 4-H office in person, online or by mail.
Teens can enjoy 4-H State Congress, which is for youth ages 13-19 at North Carolina State University and includes state presentations, horticulture judging, fashion revue, poultry judging, talent show, community service projects, elections, banquets, dance socials and more.
