2016 4-H Summer
Adventures

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 programs. 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.  There are short workshops on woodworking, cooking and more. At Junk Drawer Robotics, youth will gain an understanding in the basic science concepts related to robotics.  This is a program for youth who love to build and design things.  These are just a few of the programs being offered this summer.  Magic of Electricity will help youth learn about electricity and the careers in the field by doing hands on activities.  ‘4-H U – Youth Grow Here” is a new program that will give youth insight to many areas that 4-H offers to youth.  From science, ag to animals; youth will get to experience it all. You can find full details in the 4-H Summer Adventures program packet located here.
