As spring arrives summer is sure to follow and 4-H summer camp will once again offer Hardin County youth four of the best days of the entire year as they meet new friends, learn to swim, fish and


“Sally” down the alley for the first time in their life. Crafts, nature study, fishing, archery and shooting sports are among the long list of activities available at Dawson Springs 4-H summer camp, July 20 – 23.

Kentucky 4-H Camps have been accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA) in providing a safe, nurturing and nurturing environment for all campers. Those interested in attending are encouraged to take advantage of the “Early Bird” registration (before May 1st) where $145 includes transportation, meals, lodging, camp t-shirt, small pack back and water bottle. A $50 dollar deposit will reserve a spot for your child with the final payment due on Friday June 5. Registrations made after May 1 will be $165 per child.

As one parent comments on the 2008 camp “Emma LOVED camp…since the moment I picked her up, she talked non-stop until that night when she “Cotton Eyed Joe” to bed! Which of course, as you know, she learned the Cotton Eyed Joe at camp. I don’t know which part she liked the most and she cannot wait till next year. She really loved all the camp staff as they were all so nice and made the kids feel so comfortable. We really appreciate all the time and effort that goes into 4-H camp!”

To learn more call the Hardin Cooperative Extension Service, 765-4121, and ask for the 4-H secretary who will be glad to mail out the registration forms.
