Sussex County 4-H is pleased to continue their tradition of providing affordable and quality summer day camps for Delaware youth ages 5 to 10. Each camp is carefully planned and introduces children to a wide variety of 4-H curriculum – educational activities that have helped to make 4-H the largest and one of the most admired youth programs in the country. Children will participate in hands-on classes such as Food & Nutrition, Arts & Crafts, Recreation and Environmental Education. 4-H membership is not required to attend camp, however space is limited and camps fill up fast!
The following camps have room available:
Additional information and photos of the 2010 camps can be found on our 4-H camp website. We welcome any questions or inquiries. Please contact 4-H camp director Jill Jackson at (302) 856-2585 ext 524.
