Fillmore County 4-H day camps scheduled


Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
Posted in All Fillmore County Fair

This summer, there will be two 4-H Day Camps scheduled for youth (3rd-5th graders) to attend to engage in educational and recreational activities as well as meet with other 4-H members around the county. The day camps are scheduled for the two Tuesdays following the Fillmore County Fair, which are July 29 and August 5. The timeframe for these camps are from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

On July 29, the 4-H Day Camp is planned to take place at Preston Park. Come join in on the fun as a day of activities are planned. The idea of this day camp is for a day of relaxation from the fair, with plans of having fun recreational/outdoor activities, with the thought of hopefully being able to swim later on in the afternoon at the Preston Pool (Weather Permitting). The cost for this camp is $10; that will include lunch and admission into the pool.

On August 5, the 4-H Day Camp is planned to take place at Forestville State Park. Join us for a fun-filled day of exploring & learning. We will schedule a cave tour as well as see Historic Forestville and learn a little about our past history in Southeastern Minnesota. Registration will be $10 and we ask that you bring a sack lunch to the Day Camp.

If your child(s) is at all interested in attending any of these day camps, please call the Fillmore County Extension Office (507-765-3896). If you are interested in attending Historic Forestville on August 5, please call early to reserve your spot, so your child may be registered for the day tour. Any other details or questions you may have, you may contact Will Larson, Fillmore County 4-H Youth Development Intern at the Extension Office or through email at LarsonWG05@gmail.com.
