Summer Fun 2021 – Cloverbud Camps! 

— Written By and last updated by

This week I am highlighting three of our summer day camp options in this year’s Summer Fun Program for the 5-7 age range. I love working with this age group we call “cloverbuds” because they ask questions to wonder why the world is the way it is. Each camp provides activities for cloverbuds to make friends, be creative, work in teams, and have fun! Day camp is the perfect way for young kids to practice interacting with their peers and gain teambuilding skills they will use in the future. The topics for these camps include farm life, theater and acting, and STEAM which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math activities. 

Children standing around teacher as she gives instructions for activityFirst up is the Act it Out Theater and Drama camp led by three teen Union County 4-H members. These members have performed in several plays and have a great background in theater and the arts. In this camp, they will share their passion with the youth by leading them in improv theater games, choreography dances, arts & crafts, and more. While we hope youth will gain a better understanding of theater and acting, the main goal is for them to have FUN in an interactive and engaging way. 

The second camp I want to share with you is our Day at the Farm day where participants will meet at a local farm in Union County and have live animal interactions and hands-on activities to introduce them to what it means to live on a farm. 

Finally, the last camp is our STEAM Explorers science and art camp. We’ve offered this type of camp for the last several years and youth always enjoy the different science experiments, arts and crafts projects, nature exploring, robot coding, and more! 

Check out our website (keyword 4-H Summer Fun 2021) to look at the full Summer Fun Packet with camp descriptions. 

Registration for the program is now open on Eventbrite and closes on May 31. For more information, contact the 4-H Office by email at, or by phone at 704-283-3740, or 704-283-3735. Give your child the chance to participate in a summer day camp this year. They will create memories that will last for years to come!
