  • Time to register for 4-H summer camp

    It’s time to register youth for 4-H summer camp, one of Kentucky’s long-standing and great values. 4-H camps offer unique experiences each year to children of many ethnicities, backgrounds, and situations who get to participate in traditional 4-H activities during their week-long stay.

    The activities include low and high ropes, canoeing, archery, swimming, nature hikes, arts and crafts, sports, games and more. 4-H camps run from the end of May through early August.  LaRue County will be attending camp from May 29 through June 1.
