Hello 4-H Families,

I hope you’ve all enjoyed this wonderful spring weather. We have a good deal of potential updates for you! I wanted to send out a quick reminder about our 4-H Summer Fun camps, in addition to our new scholarship application process. As part of that, I also want to highlight the return of our Babysitting, CPR, and First Aid Certification Camp. I’d also love to share some information on 4-H presentations and opportunity to join us for a workshop and brainstorming session for presentations to be delivered at the county level, and eventually submitted for district competition. Finally, I want to share registration for our annual Achievement Night, where we offer a catered dinner and afternoon to recognize the accomplishments of the year.

4-H Scholarships are available

Don’t forget our 4-H Summer Fun camps. You can find a list of available camps with their Eventbrite registration links on this page. These camps include two options for residential camps, sewing, coding, farm to fork and many others. We’re also excited to announce a formal scholarship application process that will allow even more families to engage in these low-cost summer camp opportunities. Many of our camps are already sold out, so be sure to register your youth soon!

4-H Summer Fun

In particular I wanted to highlight one of our first in-person camps of the summer led by local instructor Denise Rich. This is the first time this camp is returning to in-person instruction since the pandemic, and prepares young people to start their own babysitting business by providing the childcare tools they need, along with official CPR and First Aid certification included in the price of the camp. This is a great opportunity for young people to acquire the skills they need whether they are caring for siblings or making their own money in their neighborhoods. Camp is open for youth 9-14 and is only $170 for four days of instruction and official certification. All participants will also receive a first aid kit!

4-H Presentations are a critical part of our traditional 4-H programming. These 5-12 minute presentations are delivered first at the county level, from which a select few can then compete on the district and state level. These are great opportunities to refine public speaking skills, serve as a capstone for an extended project, and develop a 4-H portfolio that will aid in 4-H college scholarship applications. All youth from 5-18 can participate in annual presentations, and winners at the county, district, and state levels can receive prizes and awards. To participate in our FAQ and Brainstorming Workshop, register here. For additional information on presentation topics, see this page. 

Finally I want to put Achievement Night on your radar. Durham 4-H Teen Council is currently in the process of planning this dinner to recognize the accomplishments of this year. This will also serve as an opportunity to discuss new and returning programming for the Fall of 2022. Expect additional information soon, but please mark your calendar for June 2nd. Registration information will be provided soon, with only a limited number of tickets available due to the cost of catering.
