Give a Sevier County 4-H Member the Gift of Summer Camp

Still looking for that ideal Christmas gift for a 4-H member on your Christmas list? Why not give them a trip to 4-H Camp.

Even though it is cold outside, it is never too early to begin making plans for summer camp. I know that many 4-H members would love to see a trip to summer camp, wrapped up under their tree.

Sevier County 4-H will offer a variety of camping experiences for the Summer of 2015.

  • Traditional 4-H Camp at the Clyde Austin 4-H Center in Greeneville is scheduled for June 8-12 for 4th – 6th graders while 7th & 8th graders will attend July 6-10. This overnight experience offers a multitude of outdoor recreational opportunities including: swimming, crafts, camp fires and wildlife experiences. Cost for the week will be between $260.00 to $290.00 depending on the week and covers activities, lodging, meals and transportation.
  • Fashion and Design Camp is set for June 2-4, 2015, in Pigeon Forge. Campers get to explore the world of fashion and design with hands-on experiences and trips to local attractions. Cost is $100.00 which includes lodging, meals and workshop materials.
  • 4-H Electric Camp is set for July 7-10, 2015, at the University of Tennessee Knoxville. Electric Camp is open to current 6th & 7th graders and gives campers the opportunity to explore the world of energy and science in hands-on learning centers while spending time on the UT Campus. Cost will be around $250.00 and includes meals, lodging, field trips and a t-shirt.
