There they will be able to interact with 4-H agents and other youth at camp, from Southwind district, Wildcat district, Greenwood, Chautauqua, and Cherokee counties, in a safe/monitored manner. Daily zoom meetings for instructional training and interaction with other youth will happen as well as youth will be able to post on the camp platform about their activity to learn from others and show off their camp projects. Camp projects will be centered around nature, STEM, arts and crafts, etc. and will need common household items. A supply list will be provided at registration.

4-H Enrollment and Fee:

Enrollment for the new 4-H year is done through 4-H Online. 4-H is a great organization that teaches life skills, encourages higher education, and youth are less likely to be involved in risky behaviors (Tufts University, 2012). There is a waiver available for the fee. When you come to the payment choices just choose the waiver. No money is to be sent to the local office - it goes to the state office and there is an address provided if you are sending a check. The enrollment system is open as of October 1, 2018 for the new 4-H year. Returning families must enroll by January 31, 2019.

New families may enroll until May 1 of the current 4-H year. If you have new members joining your club encourage them to get signed up early so they don't miss the deadline. See link above to enroll.
