NC 4-H Summer 2020 Camp Out!
Summer camp is fundamentally a physical, place-based experience that emphasizes fun while learning. At its most basic level, summer camp is an experience. It’s fun, it’s sweaty, and it forges memories and relationships that last a lifetime. 4-H summer camp – like so many aspects of young peoples’ lives this year – just won’t be the same. But that doesn’t mean we can’t give our youth a fun experience that still provides the connections, entertainment, and learning of traditional camp. We just have to do it in a virtual space.
On June 22, 2020, we will kick off a week-long experiential event that will use technology to bring us together and connect us with the outdoors. The NC 4-H Summer CAMP OUT! is a free virtual camping experience that will feature some of your favorite 4-H camping traditions like a dance party, slide show, trivia night, Arts & Crafts, and a virtual campfire. Families will have an a la carte menu of organized camp activities to choose from so you can invest as much or as little screen time as you want. The week’s activities will culminate in a Friday-night backyard (or living room) CAMP OUT complete with some of your favorite camp songs, skits, and s’mores. This isn’t traditional 4-H summer camp, but it is a completely new experience that will keeps us all grounded in the essential elements of camp. We will still make memories that will last a lifetime. This time however, those memories will come from connecting with friends new and old online, finding nature in your very own backyard, and joining hands with your family around the campfire.
