Reduce Summer Learning Loss

During the COVID 19 pandemic, I’m sure it may be a bit difficult to start thinking about summer activities, but to be honest it’s crucial now more than ever. According to researchers, youth’s achievements decline by one month on average during the summer months. A great opportunity to reduce the amount of youth whose academic achievements decline due to lack of summer learning opportunities is virtual summer learning opportunities like Union County 4-H’s virtual Summer Fun camp series. Yes, you heard right. We are going virtual with online and offline learning opportunities for youth ages 5-14 to actively create lasting summer memories through engaging fun activities at home. 

There are ten options for you to choose from ranging from cooking to robotics. The youth will learn how to make simple recipes in Kid Chef, explore nature in Beyond the Backyard, or become a science fanatic through engaging experience in your own home in Mad Scientists. There is something for everybody! 

Additionally, North Carolina 4-H will be hosting various virtual camps with different project focus this summer. We will be sharing information soon about those opportunities, too. 

For more information, visit to learn about the camps offered and stay updated on camp availability. You may also contact the local 4-H office at, 704.283.3740, or 704.283.3735.
