Ellis County Summer Camp 2020  |  July 13-17, 2020

You don’t want to miss out attending the Ellis County 4-H Summer Camp 2020! The camp will be held at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office the week of July 13th.

There will be a total of three (3) camps: Sewing Camp (July 13th & 14th), STEM Camp (July 15th & 16th), and Pinterest Camp (July 17th). Each camp will have a morning session (9-12 pm) and an afternoon session (1-4 pm): For the Sewing and STEM camps, each day will have a different project but each session (morning and afternoon) will consist of the same project for that day. Pinterest Camp is only one day and the morning session will be the same for the afternoon session (just as it is for Sewing and STEM camps). 

As we are finalizing the specific details to what each Camp will do/make, that information will be shared with you in the upcoming week(s).  Make sure you check your emails!
