Outdoor Adventures Club January Meeting

Have you been thinking about joining the 4-H Outdoor Adventures Club? Well to kick off the new year, the club will be participating in an amazing field trip to the Earth to Sky Park!

Space is limited for this event, so contact Jordan today to reserve your spot! Deadline to reserve your spot is Friday, January 6th. (, 929-682-6186).

Plan for 4-H Overnight Camp in 2023

We will be camping at the Eastern 4-H Center on the coast of North Carolina in 2023! Spaces are filling up quickly, reserve your spot today! This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for youth to learn more about their State, while developing skills they will use for the rest of their lives!

There are few tools as powerful as the camp experience to positively impact the lives of young people. At 4-H Overnight Camp, your child can look forward to a week of making new friends, swimming, horseback riding, archery, canoeing, rock climbing, games, campfires, sleeping in cabins, and much more. The life skills they learn at camp, including responsibility and independence, will help them in school, when they attend college, and in their first jobs.
