A summer like no other calls for a summer 4-H program like no other.

Due to Covid-19 precautions, summer 4-H programming in Polk County will all be socially distanced. While each offering focuses on hands-on learning, students will access their programs virtually and complete them independently, with adult supervision from home.

For 2020, Polk County 4-H will offer three program options for the month of July.

The Kickin’ Nutrition Healthy Habits Program is for ages 9-12 and participants will blend comedy and music with engaging research-based, peer-to-peer nutrition instruction and cooking demonstrations.

Babysitting Basics 4 Fun and 4 Profit is offered for youth ages 12-18 and will cover all the basics of babysitting such as sickness or injuries, how to stay safe and keep the children safe and how to conduct a business.

The third program offering is for any student ages 5-18 who would like to learn more about our North Carolina agriculture. The Polk County 4-H Agriculture Scavenger Hunt will launch families on an adventure throughout the county seeking out and capturing pictures of agricultural landmarks while learning more about each one.

All 2020 4-H Summer programming is free, but parents must register students for their chosen session(s) by June 30. To find out more or register online, visit polk.ces.ncsu.edu or give the NC Cooperative Extension of Polk County a call at 828-894-8218.
