Before we head to camp, parents please remember that your campers’ health forms ( need to be revisited to make sure everything is current. If your child has a food allergy, please let us know so there are no issues at camp. Don’t forget to include any medication that your child is taking. Our goal is to make a safe, fun environment for your children while they learn in an outdoor setting. Please do not forget this very important step.

Join the excitement June 16, from 8:30 a.m. at the Carlin Equestrian Park. Bring your animals, from the very small to the very large; we will have showmanship instructors helping with beef, sheep, goat, rabbit and poultry. This is not a competition nor are their prizes or entry fees, just some great tips on how to bring home the buckle! Please sign up at or by calling the Cooperative Extension Office at 738-7291. The Carlin Equestrian Park will provide a concession stand.
Rabbit members must bring frozen water bottles for their rabbits to keep them cool and calm. Remember to bring water for your animals.
