4-H Exploring Your Environment Summer Camp

The 4-H Youth Development Program provides educational experiences through a "learn by doing" approach and helps youth acquire knowledge, develop life skills, and form attitudes to enable them to become self-directed, productive, and contributing members of society. Through 4-H experiences and relationships, youth build better lives and become better stewards, employees, community citizens, and leaders.

This five-day, 4-H camp adventure—open to any youth age 10-14—combines classroom experiences with field trips to natural areas around Sarasota County. (Note: To help you find the best fit for your schedule, we offer the same camp on separate weeks.)

Participants will learn about the environment and ecosystems, make scientific inquiries and observations, and get hands-on learning and experience in environmental science and education.
