Delaware Cow Camp 2017- Registrations Due June 9th

Youth and adult dairy volunteers are beginning to plan for Cow Camp 2016 which will be held on Saturday, July 1st and Sunday July2nd at the Delaware State Fairgrounds.  The day will begin with registration at 9:30 am. Participants should bring their own calf if they have one.  If a child wishes to participate and does not have access to a calf, one can be provided for them.  The schedule will provide ample opportunities for great hands on learning experiences as well as time for socializing and fun.  Activities will be scheduled throughout the camp to give participants experiences with fitting and showmanship as well as an introduction to some dairy science related topics.

Participants of all skill levels are welcome.  Campers and their calves will work in small groups, each led by a former Cow Camp Champ.  There will be time for fitting of individual animals and showmanship practice.  These activities will be age and experience appropriate with some doing more clipping and others just giving it a try.

Participants should bring a bag lunch for Saturday.  Dinner Saturday and breakfast Sunday are included in the registration fee.  Participants are not required to stay overnight if they do not wish to.  Saturday’s planned activities include a small show and will conclude with a family picnic.   Please indicate on your registration form how many family members will be attending the Sunday picnic so we can plan accordingly.

A current 4-H Health/Code of Conduct Form is required for participation.  If you are enrolled in 4-H through 4-H Online, there is no need to send an additional health form.  If you are an FFA member or junior dairy exhibitor you must fill out and submit a 4-H Health and Code of Conduct Form.  Cloverbuds are welcome to participate; however, an adult needs to attend with them.  Any parent wishing to stay overnight with their child must have completed the Delaware 4-H volunteer screening process.

Registration forms and the $15.00 registration fee are due by June 9th.  Please make checks payable to the Delaware Holstein Association.  Please mail registration form, Health Form, and fee to Cow Camp, 69 Transportation Circle, Dover, DE 19901.  For more information, please contact Susan Garey truehart@udel.edu or (302)730-4000.  Additional funding for this activity is being provided by a grant from the Chuck Busker Endowment with the Delaware 4-H Foundation and the Delaware Holstein Association.  Once you have registered, additional information will be provided.

Happy New Year 4-H Friends and Families!

We ended 2016 with great community service activities which included a joint effort between Jr. Council and C3 (Camp Counselor Club) assembling treat bags for the Newark Police. We’d also like to extend a huge thank you to the many clubs and individuals who generously contributed $730 in gift cards which were distributed to 4-H families affected by the tragic wildfires in Sevier County via the University of Tennessee.

We have a variety of 4-H activities planned to kick off 2017, beginning with the Favorite Foods Contest on January 21.  We hope many 4-Hers will participate. Not only can you enter Favorite Foods, but you can also participate in the Foods Judging Contest and submit your photos in the Photography Contest. Parents, leaders and friends can enter the Adult Dessert Competition, which will be judged by our Jr. Council members. While waiting for the results to be announced, there will be a grocery shopping challenge activity for your learning and entertainment.

Favorite Foods and Foods Judging Training is available this Thursday, January 5 at the county office (RSVP now) and entries for the Favorite Foods Contest are due January 11.

Winter Workshop enrollment is now open and there are interesting opportunities.  Please see the flyer for all of the important information and reserve your spot now!

Stay tuned for registration information for the January 28-29 Teen Weekend at the Courtyard Marriott on the University of Delaware Campus and February 4th Leader Forum in Kent County at Polytech High School.
