4-H2O Summer Programs
Looking for a summer program for your 10-14 year old that is both educational and tons of fun? Would your child enjoy swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing and hiking sound, while learning about biology, history, forestry and the environment? 4-H2O summer programs are much more than day camps - they are unique opportunities for youth to build an appreciation and understanding of Lexington and Richland County's lakes, rivers and streams. At "Exploring Lake Murray" students will tour the lake on pontoon boats, swim each day, and learn about fishing and preventing water pollution. Older students, and kids who have already experienced "Exploring Lake Murray" can attend "Exploring the Congaree Watershed." This more advanced program includes canoeing, hiking, studying forestry, ecosystems, and more. Follow the links below for more information!
- 4-H2O Exploring the Congaree Watershed (formerly Water, Woods and Wetlands)
- June 25-29, Harbison State Forest, ages 11-14
- Print Registration Form
4-H2O Exploring Lake Murray is now FULL!
- 4-H2O Exploring Lake Murray (formerly Pontoon Classroom)
- June 11-15, SCE&G recreation area at Lake Murray, ages 10-12
- Email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the waiting list and/or to the mailing list for next year's camps.
For older students, 4-H2O Environmental Classroom builds on knowledge from Pontoon Classroom and adds forestry for an extra challenge. Students canoe at Congaree Park, tour a fish hatchery and SCE&G's testing lab, search a creek for macroinvertebrates (bugs!) and dissect a fish! Thank you to all our wonderful guest speakers - we learned so much, and had a great time.
