4-H Youth Development - Event Registration

4-H2O: Exploring South Carolina Watersheds

Summer day camp experience; locations across the state

4-H2O is a youth education program that has been held annually across the state for more than 12 years.  It is a water-based science camp that runs in more than 15 counties across South Carolina, allowing students an opportunity to learn and experience this state’s water resources first-hand.

4-H2O is a hands-on science inquiry program that provides children and adults with knowledge about their local water resources and teaches them the field, analytical and critical thinking skills they need to intelligently participate in making decisions that affect the quality of these aquatic systems.

Most of all, the youth will have a FUN and enriching experience on South Carolina's scenic waterways!
