CREAMERY PA – Registration has begun for various summer day camps that will be offered from June 25 through Aug. 3 by Montgomery County 4-H at its center on Route 113 in Creamery PA, near Skippack, the organization announced Monday (March 5, 2012).
According to 4-H spokeswoman Rebecca Villegas, 4-H will offer:
- “Clover Bud Fun,” specifically for 5- to 7-year-olds. Children will experience 4-H by sampling activities covering nature, animals, art, music, the environment, food, fitness, and health, she said.
- “Young Chefs,” “Mad Scientists,” and veterinary science camps targeting youths from ages 8-13, with three days of exploration and experimentation. Two one-day sessions, called Fabulous 4-H Fridays, also will introduce 4-H to participants.
- A “Teen Leader Summit” designed for teens only. It will focus on leadership skills and team building for youths interested in leadership in their schools, sports teams and community. Members will enjoy a mock “apprentice project,” like the popular television show, and will also work on projects to develop speaking and communication skills.
Also, 4-H this summer will again offer half-day Art Camp sessions taught by local artist Denise Romano Bright, a professional artist and photographer who has been exhibiting fine art, crafts and photography for more than 30 years. Her sessions, geared for children ages 8 to 14, include fiber art fun, jewelry-making, puppet-making, paper arts (suminagashi), trash-to-treasure, mixed media, weaving and basketry, and fashion accessories.
