Get your junior high student involved for a fun-filled week at 4-H Ed-Venture Camp this summer.
4-H camp for students in grades 7-8 is scheduled for July 5-8 at Ridley 4-H Center in Columbia.
Campers will rally with team members to win team challenges and unleash talents and skills by acquiring knowledge and skills to help them get where they want to be. They may enjoy an Olympic-size, crystal-clear pool with a 120-foot, figure-eight water slide; a lighted sports complex with a softball field; and volleyball and basketball courts. Other facilities include a wildlife center, covered rifle range, airbrush center, a creek for aquatic exploration, modern archery range with 3-D targets and an 18-hole miniature golf course. An outdoor theater is the backdrop for campfires and vespers.
A canteen offers refreshing snack items. Campers will also discover the value of friendship while meeting campers and leaders who will become lifelong friends. When they get home, campers will rave about the great time they had, said Una Johnson, Obion County University of Tennessee Extension Service agent.
Any children completing grades seven through eight this year are eligible to attend. It makes no difference if the child attends city or county schools or is home schooled.
The cost of camp is $215. This fee includes the cost for transportation, lodging, meals and a camp T-shirt. Additional money will be needed for snacks, crafts and souvenirs.
To register, visit the Obion County UT Extension Service office located at 302 South Third St. in Union City or call 885-3742 and ask for an application.
Youth wishing to attend Ed-Venture Camp whose parents are active members of the U.S. military are eligible for special scholarships. Contact Mrs. Johnson for more information.
The deadline for all applications and fees is June 17.
