913 Camp info.  Passing this on from Willie.  If you have not received the summer newsletter from the Extension Office, please let me know and I'll forward it to you.  :-)  

Youth 912 Camp Gets A New Name… Youth 913 Camp is Just Around the Corner

Our 3rd Annual Youth Camp will be held on July 22nd – 25th at the Cherokee County Expo Center in Jacksonville.  This camp will follow a similar format as the two previous years.  It will be a hands-on day camp for kids ages 9 to 13 years old from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. each day. This camp is meant to be an introduction to some of the major projects that 4-H has to offer.  Though the final schedule has not been set, the topics covered will range from Livestock & Animal Projects (large & small), Dog Projects, Food & Fashion Projects, Entomology & Horticulture Projects, Shooting Sports Projects (Archery & Rifle), Public Speaking Projects, Consumer Decision Making Projects and Water Education & Appreciation. 

Meals, snacks and refreshments will be provided.  You may pre-register for this camp by contacting the County Extension Office at (903) 683-5416. We will then send you the registration form that you can either mail in or drop off in person by the registration deadline (July 16th). This camp is open to non-4-H members as well as 4-H members.  In fact, if you are a member and planning to attend, you are encouraged to bring a non-4-H member with you to camp.  

Enrollment fees for this camp are as follows:
Non-Member: $90.00
Current 4-H Member: $60.00

If a family will have multiple siblings attending camp, a declining schedule will be applied to each subsequent enrollee.  First child enrolls at full rate; each additional child enrolls at $10 less than the child before them.  Example: Family with three non-members attending would be $90+$80+$70=a savings of $30.00.

Remember the deadline to register is July 16th at 5:00 p.m.  A late registration is open on the 17th and 18th fee of $15.00 will assessed to each enrollee.

**Tip** A discount store, such as Wal Mart, is a great place to stage your own "trial run." Have an adult go with you and give you scenarios using the products you are studying. It really does help to have a hands on practice.
