4-H Camp the Ideal Christmas Gift for 4-H Kids

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.

4-H will offer a variety of camp experiences for the Summer of 2016.

Traditional 4-H Camp at the Clyde Austin 4-H Center in Greeneville is scheduled for June 6-10, 2016 for 4th – 6th graders while 7th & 8th graders will attend July 11-15, 2016.
