(Extension submission) Walworth County 4-H is pleased to be offering a two-day 4-H Day Camp program for youth completing grades 3-8! The camp will be held at the Walworth County Fairgrounds on June 15-16 from 8:30 a.m.-7 p.m. each day. It will follow an “Animals around the World” theme and feature a variety of activities led by 2021 4-H Camp Counselor team members. The event is designed as a fun, local, and inexpensive way of previewing many of the beloved 4-H resident camp experiences that Walworth County 4-Hers participate in during non-COVID-19 years. During the experience, participants can expect to engage in arts and crafts activities, recreation, “water carnival,” air rifle target practice, nature science and exploration, and drama. There will also be plenty of camp songs, a bit of dancing, a campfire program, a friendly “land games” competition, and more. Check-in will run from 8:00-8:30 a.m. daily and check-out will be held from 7-7:15 p.m. nightly. 4-H membership is not required for day camp participation.
Registration deadline for this event is Sunday, June 6 at 11:59 p.m. A non-refundable participation fee of $15 per youth must be paid in advance (with a postmark date of no later than June 7); details are provided at the time of registration. Event is limited to the first 80 campers who register and pay. The event will be held rain or shine, but in the event of severe weather, one or both days of the event may be cancelled. Registration fee includes an event t-shirt. The event will follow current Wisconsin 4-H meeting guidance for COVID-19. A big thank you goes to the Walworth County 4-H Senior Leaders’ Association for their financial support of this program.
