Brunswick County 4-H, sponsored by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension, will offer a variety of activities, field trips and day camps for children ages 5-19 through the 4-H Summer Enrichment Program, Passport to Adventure. This summer is full of fun, educational activities for youth to participate in beginning June 13.

Cloverbuds (5-8-year-olds) will meet from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. every Monday and 9-12-year-olds will meet from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays. A registration fee of $15 covers the cost of your child’s Passport to Adventure 4-H T-shirt, a CD slideshow of the summer’s activities, as well as the end of the summer Moon Bounce party.
Specially trained 4-H teens, or TiLT team members, will be on hand during all camps to help the leaders. They have received training and will be First Aid and CPR certified.
Some Cloverbud programs for this summer include: a study of birds by the North Carolina Museum of Natural Science, Kitchen Adventures, Wearable Art and more. Older children can enjoy a visit to Airlie Gardens, Poplar Grove Plantation, studies in ocean and pond life, exploring the dunes, surfing, as well as “Zoo Snooze,” an overnight trip to the North Carolina Zoo.

This event includes state presentations, horticulture judging, fashion revue, poultry judging, talent show, community service projects, elections, banquets, dance socials and more, while staying at the dorms of the university.
