4-H Camp Sign-Ups 2021

   In regards to 4-H Camp Sign-ups, there’s good news and bad news. The bad news is that the traditional overnight camps were cancelled again this year due to COVID19. The good news is that the Ridley 4-H Center is delivering 4-H Camp to Wayne County via the Traveling 4-H Roadshow!

   On May 24th, Wayne County 4-H will be hosting a full day of 4-H Camp fun at the Green River Baptist Church. There will be crafts, tie-dye, archery, gaga, and so much more! The even better news: the first thirty-five (35) 4-H members to sign up will be able to do so for a *very* discounted price, due to our generous local sponsors! After the first 35 slots are filled, the price will return to the original price. This camp is open to all students in grades 4-8. Deadline to register is May 12 so hurry to the Extension Office to register your 4-H youth. Call 722-3229 for details on pricing!
