YES Camp will be lots of fun with great educational workshops, and those who attend always seem to have a great time! This is an excellent opportunity for junior and intermediate 4-H members in our district! The theme this year is Auto B Good. There will be a costume contest so have your kiddos dress up in some Automobile themed way, I.E. car logos, race car drivers, mechanics, pit crew, use your imagination; however, Please remember the 4-H dress code when dressing up!
