Slots are still open for a series of Halifax County 4-H summer camps which begin next week.
A listing of the camps along with registration information can be found at the 4-H website.
The camps will be held at the 4-H Rural Life Center on Highway 903 outside Halifax.
There will be six camps available for children ages 6 through 14 to attend.
“We hope that families take full advantage of these day camps that have been a staple for so many people in the community,” said Jerry E. Edmonds IV, 4-H extension agent. “For many Halifax County families these camps have come just in time as students are finishing school and parents are looking for fun outdoor activities for their kids to participate in.”
The Halifax 4-H camp lineup will start off with Junior Deputy Camp where campers will learn about forensics, detective work and how to solve mysteries using scientific research.
This camp is the only free one this year and is sponsored by Sheriff Wes Tripp and the sheriff’s office.
All other camps are $55 a week.
At the STEM Camp, campers will learn about engineering and how to construct their own robots. The entire week leads up to a camp-wide robotics competition.
Frontier Camp will give campers an old-time glimpse of what life was like in the American West as a pioneer.
Campers will take a field trip to Medoc Mountain State Park to enjoy hiking, games and learning from park rangers.
The Hunger Games Camp is an opportunity for campers to test their physical and emotional abilities. Campers will learn first aid, teamwork and survival skills throughout the week.
Camps run from June 7 through July 30.
