4-H Day Camps Back for In-Person Learning

Orange County 4-H is excited to offer in-person 4-H day camps again this summer. Though we offered virtual versions of camp in 2020, we know kids are ready to get together for learning and fun alongside their peers. The 4-H Slogan of “Learn by Doing” is integral to our camp activities and campers will have opportunities each day to create, build, experiment, plant, cook, play and move as they learn about science and healthy living habits.

S.T.E.M. and Healthy Kids Camps

S.T.E.M. Camp is scheduled for June 28-July 2 and will feature a theme each day such as “Mars Base Camp” or “Zapped – Electricity in Action.” Campers will engage in activities that are designed to teach hands-on science during sessions that involve exploration, experimentation, engineering, and project building. Healthy Kids Camp will follow during the week of July 12-16. This week will focus on the domains of healthy living including physical activity, healthy nutrition, positive money habits, and the emotional benefits of spending time outdoors and connecting with others. Campers will engage in activities both indoors and outdoors. Each day will include fun physical activity and preparation of a healthy snack that can easily be repeated at home. The goal of both of our camps is to spark youth interest in science and healthy living that will continue into adolescence and adulthood.

Registration is Open

Both S.T.E.M. and Healthy Kids camps are open to campers ages 8-12 and will take place between 8:00 and 12:00 Monday through Friday. Capacity is limited to 20 campers per week in order to allow for safe distancing during indoor sessions. UF/IFAS Extension safety protocols regarding masks and distancing that are in place at camp time will be followed. Presently, all UF/IFAS Extension programs require masks for all participants.
