Your child’s mind may be on Spring Break as February turns to March but here at the UF/IFAS Extension office, planning for summer is well underway. This summer, Wakulla 4-H has day camps available for children who want to learn all about insects or all about how to manage and grow their finances now and in the future. The always popular cooking and grilling camps are back. Sewing camp has added an advanced track for those who have become experienced with needle and thread after prior years attending our popular sewing camp. New to our summer day camp line up this year will be two archery offerings – for beginning or more advanced archers.
Day Camp Registration
Day Camp registration is open as of March 3. There are limited day camp spots available. Once a camp is full, UF/IFAS Extension staff will take names for a cancellation waiting list.
Registration for Camp Timpoochee
Registration for Camp Timpoochee will open in April. Wakulla 4-H offers a week of overnight residential camp at Camp Timpoochee in Niceville every summer. For 2019, that week is July 8-12. Students ride bus transportation to camp together. They depart from the UF/IFAS Extension office in Crawfordville on Monday morning and return Friday afternoon. While at Camp Timpoochee, students stay in air conditioned cabins and enjoy a range of activities including crafts, swimming, boating, and archery. Please watch this site and the Wakulla 4-H Facebook page for details and registration dates for Camp Timpoochee.
