This summer local 4-H programs offer camps where youth get to do some of the things they used to do back “in the olden days.”
Junior Heritage Skills Camp is a multicounty camp for youth interested in learning how things were done before electricity invented.
The two-day, one-night camp is open to youth in Bledsoe, Bradley, McMinn, Meigs, Monroe, and Polk Counties and will be held in Reliance July 18 and 19. The purpose of the camp is to teach what it was like to live in the “pioneer days.”
Youth attending the camp have a chance to swim, learn new skills like basket-weaving and gun safety, and play lots of games. Fourth-, fifth- and sixth- graders are invited to attend this camp.
The cost is $55 per person and the deadline to register is Friday, June 29. Transportation to the camp is not included and participation is limited.
Registration forms are available at the 4-H Office at 95 Church St. S.E., or by calling 423-728-7001.
For more information or to receive an electronic version of any registration form, please contact Lynne Middleton at LMiddle2@utk.edu.
