4-H Open House Upcoming at Extension Office


From Staff Reports

  Henry County’s 4-H program will host an Open House Aug. 18 from 6-7:30 p.m., at the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension Office, 97 Lake Dow Road in McDonough. During the Open House, students in sixth through 12th grades will be able to check out 4-H programs that are available this year.

  One 4-H activity that will be highlighted at the event is an annual camp that was held in June at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Ga. Local camper Dawson Babischkin said she enjoyed last year’s 4-H camp so much, she wanted to come back again this year.

  “The first year was a great experience,” said Babischkin. “I also saw how much second-year campers got to do and wanted to have that opportunity. When I went to camp after fifth grade, I had never really been away from home, but everyone makes you feel so welcome. It’s a really great experience, the counselors, the activities. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!”

  Additional summer activities offered by the 4-H program this year included tours of Turner Field and the Fernbank Science Center, both in Atlanta and the UGA campus in Athens. Students in 4-H also participated in a class on how to make brunch, and certification programs for CPR/first aid.

  Students at the Open House must be accompanied by a parent. For more information, call the Extension Office at 770-288-8421.
