Youth offered opportunity for hands-on STEAM learning

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development Program in southern Nevada is accepting applications for the 2019 4-H Summer Camp to be held July 22-26 at South Lake Tahoe. Registrations must be submitted by July 15.

The 4-H Summer Camp provides an opportunity for 4-H youth ages 9-12 to participate in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) activities. Students will learn about nature, healthy lifestyles, robotics, GPS, rocketry, dramatic arts, leadership and creative arts, among other topics. Campers will also have time for outdoor activities, including kayaking, swimming, paddle boating and archery.

Youth must be 4-H members to register for camp. Membership is free, and interested youth may contact their local Cooperative Extension office to apply. The cost to attend the camp is $450 and covers bus transportation, lodging, meals, activities, a t-shirt and a group photo. Space is limited, and full payment is required to secure a spot.

4-H youth can register online at the registration page. For more information, contact Southern Nevada 4-H Program Manager Karen Best at 702-257-5538 or bestk@unce.unr.edu.
