This week-long day camp will provide 9-12 year olds a hands-on environmental science experiences in a natural setting. Using activities from Project Learning Tree and other high-quality curricula, this program will allow kids to explore their local environment while learning about important concepts like water conservation, wildlife diversity, and solar energy.
The fees cover all activity materials and lunch each day.
All participants will be required to enroll in San Joaquin 4-H, which has a $60 enrollment fee that gives the youth access to all 4-H activities from July 1st-June 30th, so members can also participate in other county-level activities, local 4-H clubs, overnight summer camp, and more. If a participant has already paid their $60 fee to another 4-H unit they do not need to pay it again.
All participants will also need to pay a $50 program fee for the daycamp program.
Both of these fees can be waived or the participant can be granted a scholarship if they have financial need. For more information, please contact Ariel Clay at email@example.com.
