The Effingham County Extension office is winding down its summer fun as 4-H’ers have been participating in many events within their summer programming.

After returning from Camp Rock Eagle, 4-H’ers had a splash at Statesboro’s water park on multiple occasions throughout their summer vacation. Rising fifth-graders enjoyed a day of going to the movies, learning the skill of beekeeping and how to prepare a healthy snack.

A Georgia Southern University day gave the 4-H’ers an opportunity to explore some of GSU’s features, including the Center for Wildlife Education, Garden of the Coastal Plain and the Mad Scientist Museum, followed by an dining experience on campus. The Kids in the Kitchen summer edition proved to be a yummy time for all those who participated, as they learned  how to make summer jelly, create their own pizza and make homemade ice cream.

Junior 4-H’ers will enjoy a day at The Clubhouse in Statesboro, playing laser tag and hitting the batting cages and arcade. Several 4-H’ers participated in a hunter safety course, Georgia’s 4-H photography contest and a dairy poster contest.
