Next month, kids will get to do all the fun outdoor adventures you may recall doing when you were growing up, like canoeing.
Registration is now under way for 4-H Summer Fun & Adventures, which consists of a series of educational activities designed to make the most of summer vacation by encouraging youth to learn with productive activities that are fun. Activities will be held from June 17 to Aug. 7.
4-H Summer Fun & Adventures is open to youth regardless of prior 4-H participation — 4-H membership is not required. To enroll in any 4-H Summer Fun Program/Class you must fill out a registration form, a 4-H Enrollment form, and a notarized 4-H Medical Release Form. You should also review the 4-H Code of Conduct with your children so they can be aware of those behavior guidelines. These forms may be found online at http://www.nc4h.org/procedures_and_guidelines/index.html or obtained from the Richmond County Cooperative Extension Office at 123 Caroline St. in Rockingham during normal business hours, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Friday. Registration is first come, first serve and spaces will not be held.
In addition to class fees, there is a registration fee of $10 per child, up to $30 per family.
Payment must be made in full for all day camp events at the time of registration. Snacks and juice/bottled water will be provided for all programs.
