Summer Program Survey Winner!
We are always striving to improve and create impacts within the communities we serve. During and after our summer programs, we collected participant and parent evaluations. Parents who completed the evaluations were entered into our drawing to receive a $50 credit towards our 2019 summer programs.  Congratulations Amy Hutchison!
You Can Share Your Input Too!
Unfortunately, we can't offer a credit towards our programs, but if you would like to help prioritize statements collected as part of our Extension needs assessment; here is your chance!

Millstone 4-H Summer Camp Discount!
Summer Camp at Millstone 4-H Camp Center is June 16-21, 2019!

Millstone 4-H Camp is an ACA accredited camp that provides age appropriate, small group experiences in a safe, enjoyable environment! Campers enjoy daily activities such as swimming, canoeing, nature programs, horseback riding, target sports, climbing wall, arts and crafts, hiking, campfires, talent shows and more!

The cost of camp is $320 for youth who will be  8-14 years old next year. This fee covers transportation, lodging, meals, insurance, a camp t-shirt and money to use at the camp store; along with a lifetime of memories!

If you wish to register your child to attend Summer Camp at Millstone with Moore County 4-H, a non-refundable deposit is required by April 1st, 2019. If the camp deposit is made by February 1st, an additional $50 will be deducted from your overall cost. Scholarship opportunities will be available; however, families will still be responsible for a *$50 deposit. We will only be taking a small group to camp, so be sure to get your deposit in as soon as you can. Remaining balances and finalized paperwork will need to be completed by May 1, 2019.

*Please contact me directly if you don't have the means to pay the $50 deposit.
