4-H Camp 2010 Enrollment Open

Enrollment is still open for 4-H Camp for Summer 2010. 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 25-July 30. Fill out a registration form to reserve a spot. The good news is you can reserve your spot with a $100.00 deposit and have until June to save up for the rest of the fee, which is $265.00 more. The fee covers meals, lodging, t-shirt, transportation to camp and more. Contact the 4-H office at 264-3061 for more information or to register. If the week or location does not work for you, you can enroll directly with one of the five 4-H centers across the state.
