4-H Impact July 2022

Sarah Tarjeson, 4-H Youth Development Educator

  • Sheboygan County 4-H Base Camp took place July 10-13th at Upham Woods in Wisconsin Dells. We had 36 campers, 14 youth staff, and 8 adult staff. The camp ran smoothly and although we had young staff, they were mature, prepared, and had a great time with the younger youth. 4-H Camp is a place where this program and its leaders intentionally develop a sense of belonging, independence, mastery of skills, and teach kids generosity.
  • Cloverbud Day Camp took place on Monday, July 25th. 10 youth leaders and 16 K-2nd grade members gathered to learn about “Creepy Crawlies” or Arthropods. Through nature lessons, crafts, songs, and recreation, these young members learned about the value of these typically small creatures. Bug collections are often a popular project exhibited at the Sheboygan County Fair.
  • Plans for the Sheboygan County Fair are ramping up. The Sheboygan County Fair, although not the main event of the Sheboygan County 4-H Program is a premier opportunity for 4-H’ers to showcase what they have learned all year long. Animal and non-animal projects are exhibited and tools for learning responsibility and sportsmanship. In addition, the Sheboygan County Fair allows our program to host its most significant fundraiser by serving affordable delicious food and shakes to the public. The 4-H Fair Foodstand also teaches valuable work skills to youth who may be entering service fields within a few short years. We are still actively building our Celebrity Server Schedule.
