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.

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.
