Other information:

Kids are encouraged to wear old shoes and old clothes to this program.  We WILL be getting dirty and wet during some of the activities.  

Also, river sandals or old tennis shoes are better choices than flip-flops for the activities. Each day we will have time for swimming.

Each 4-H’er planning to swim should bring a swim suit, towel and sunscreen.  There are restroom facilities at the shelter where the kids can change into their swim suits if they choose not to wear it under their clothes all day.

Lunch and snacks will be provided each day.  PLEASE make sure your child eats breakfast before they arrive at the program.  We are very active all during the day and they will definitely need their energy.

We ask that 4-H’ers DO NOT bring items such as radios, electronic games, iPods, playing cards, knives, or laser pointers to the program.  We also ask that you wear clothing free of graphic or offensive language/advertising.
