MAY 2021 Edition
Staff Notes
It is exciting to have reached May of 2021. This time last year, COVID-19 restrictions were tightening and our future looked uncertain. Now, we are looking forward to a grading show hosted by the Silver Dollar Fair and an in-person 4-H Camp.

One important note: the May Council meeting has been cancelled and a special meeting about Silver Dollar Fair policies this year will take it's place. It will be held on May 13th at 7:00pm. The meeting information will be sent to CCL's for you to share with your respective groups.

Congratulations on nearing the end of a 4-H year that we hope never happens again!

Still In Orange Tier
Butte County is still in the "Orange Tier".
The Orange Tier means we can occupy 50% of space's occupancy limits, not to exceed 200 people.
Please read the "UCANR In-Person Guidelines" below, and the following text. It is an easy-to-read two-page document that also explains the tiers.

Below is a simple grid showing what meetings are permitted depending on our tier status. The full document with this grid is linked below.
4-H Camp 2021
Once again, Butte County 4-H is happening! It will just look a little different this year.

Camp will be a day-camp and will take place Monday June 28th through Thursday July 1 at Durham Park.

Each day will run from 10am - 3pm.

Monday will feature a trip to the Durham Pool. The week will be filled with many of the same traditions campers are used to at Rockin' U including crafts, recreation, "cabin" groups, campfire, skits, and a ton of FUN!

The cost for campers is $59 which includes the four days of camp, a camp t-shirt, and a very special camp experience!

Check your emails on Saturday for the registration link!
