— Written By

Believe it or not it is time to start thinking about what your child is going to be doing this summer. Summer is just around the corner and Rockingham County 4-H has some great programs planned! What is your youth doing this summer? Would you like for your youth to have a safe and productive place to spend their summer days? If so, check out the Rockingham County 4-H Summer Adventures.

Your youth can have fun while learning important life skills! Rockingham County 4-H along with the NC Cooperative Extension and United Way of Rockingham County is sponsoring the 4-H Summer Adventures Program. The programs vary in length and cost, but all programs are very reasonable with some being free! We are offering programs for youth ages five to eighteen and you do not have to be in 4-H to come, but we bet you will want to join after you see what all 4-H offers. Each program does have a limited number of spots available so be sure to contact us as soon as possible!

Here is a summary of some of the programs we are offering this year. 4-H Investigates is back – this is one of the most popular programs where youth will become detectives to solve a “murder” mystery. They will learn techniques such as DNA extraction, forensic anthropology, fingerprinting and much more.

At 4-H Robotics, youth will gain an understanding in the basic science concepts related to robotics. Youth will learn how to program a robot using the WeDo and EV3 kits. Magic of Electricity will help youth learn about electricity and the careers in the field by doing hands on activities. Would you like to learn more about painting or cake decorating, well check out our programs to learn more.

Some of the other workshops include Woodworking, 4-H Discovery, Got Money and so much more! Registration is now open – you can find full details in the 4-H Summer Adventures program packet. You can find the registration packet online HERE    or you can contact the 4-H office at 336-342-8230.
