4H Junior Master Gardening Camp Openings
Our Junior Master Gardener Summer Camp is under way and our kids are having a lot of fun learning about gardening and horticulture. This hands-on camp gives kids a chance to work in a vegetable and herb garden, teaches them about where their food comes from, and lets them observe and learn about a real, working farm. The camp, for ages 7 to 12, follows the 4-H curricula for the Junior Master Gardening Program and the Golden Ray Series.
The week-long sessions run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. One week costs $250, though the price is reduced to $225 if you register for more than one week or register more than one child.
The following weeks are still available for enrollment:
Week 3 (July 15-19): Ecology & Environmental Horticulture
Children will learn how people, plants and animals all depend upon each other and how to help take care of our environment.
Week 5 (July 29-Aug. 2): Landscape Horticulture
Campers will learn how to create and take care of beautiful gardens and how to attract birds, insects and other creatures to their own backyards and neighborhoods.
Week 7 (Aug. 12-16): Vegetables & Herbs
Children will learn how to grow and harvest many different kinds of vegetables and herbs. Then they will learn how to prepare and cook them in some yummy dishes and beverages.
Week 8 (Aug. 19-23): Life Skills & Career Exploration
Campers will learn more about themselves, their friends and their school. They will discover how to make plans for the future and do what they love doing.
