Pickens County 4-H has a list of summer activities for youth age 5-18. 4-H is located in every county in the United States and is a youth development program run out of the land-grant universities with over 100 years of experience in working with children and teens.
In Pickens County, SC youth can participate in a wide variety of activities developed for each age group. Cloverbuds (ages 5-8) can attend Cloverbud Camp: 4 mornings of educational activities that are fun and hands on. June 17 is Baking Science, July 1 is Go Animal!, July 8 is Let’s Get Crafty and July 15 is Air and Space. Each class is $5 per student and is from 8:30-11:30 at the 4-H Office in Pickens, SC.
For the older kids there is ARCHERY, Super Slippery Stuff (Goo, snakes and other yucky stuff!), Recycling day, Photography, and Fun with Flying Things (birds, bats and woodworking). In addition, there is a 3-day daycamp about wildlife and water! July 28 is “Meet the Outdoors” with hikes, bugs and forestry. July 29 is entitled “Water, water everywhere, but not a drop to drink”. On that day, students will learn about our watershed, boating and fishing. Finally, on July 30 “Feathers, Fur and Scales…Oh My!” will let the children learn about birds, fish and local wildlife. There is a discount for students who sign up for all three days.
There is a teen community service project on June 10 and a teens only Murder Mystery dinner in August.
