Summer Fun Programs 2018!

Ready for Summer!

Below you’ll find our list of summer programs for the 2018 season! Please be sure to read the special instructions below as some things have changed. As always, let us know if you have any questions.

Special Registration Instructions

This year Craven County 4-H will be conducting summer programming a little differently than in the past. This year we will be having classes once-a-week with the exception of one of our Camps. Each day of the week there will be a program that will be offered in a series. Costs range from Free to $30/youth.

In order to participate, youth will have to sign-up as a member of 4-H. There is no cost for membership, but in order to have youth covered by our insurance policy, they must register through our new 4-H Online system. Once youth are registered, each year you may login and register for the camps and programs that you want.

Towards the end of the process, you will be taken to a page that asks you if you want to add a club, project, or group. Click on “Groups” and then look for the Name of the Camp you are looking for. You may register for as many of the Camps listed below as you like. Because this is a North Carolina state-system, not all the camps in the list are available in Craven County and only the Groups that have “Craven 4-H” in front of them are available in Craven County right now.

For titles and descriptions of our camps, keep scrolling down. To register click the following link: REGISTER HERE
There is also a PDF of instructions on the site.
