Enrollment for 4-H Camp for Summer 2013 is still open. Watauga County 4-H will escort a group of 8-14 year old campers to Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Center. The center is located above Greensboro in Rockingham County, near Reidsville. The camping week is July 7-July 12. The good news is you can reserve your spot with a $100.00 deposit and have until July to save up for the rest of the fee, which is $360.00 more (total of $460.00). The fee covers meals, lodging, t-shirt, transportation to camp and more. Special programming for 12-14 year olds is an additional $65.00. Some scholarship money is available. Contact the 4-H office at 264-3061 for more information or to register or download the form below. See more 4-H camping information here.

North Carolina Science Festival is a two-week-long, 500-mile-wide celebration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Across the state, North Carolinians participate in science talks, lab tours, nature experiences, exhibits, performances and other activities, hosted by all kinds of community organizations –schools, colleges and universities, parks, libraries, museums and businesses.
NCSF was founded in 2010 by UNC-Chapel Hill’s Morehead Planetarium and Science Center and is the first statewide science festival in the U.S. Morehead continues to produce the Festival in partnership with many sponsors and event hosts. The 2013 Festival is scheduled for April 5-21, and Time Warner Cable is the 2013 Festival Champion.
