We love 4H Camp

This year I signed the kids up for a few of the Alachua County 4H day camps.  Aubrey and Amelia enjoyed sewing camp a few weeks ago.  Aubrey, Joshua, and Max had a great day making an assortment of cool crafts last week.  Today we are joining with some other 4H families for a field trip to the U of F’s Entomology Dept.  Next week Joshua will be going with a friend to 4H’s Butterfly camp.  Aubrey is also scheduled for a gun safety camp next month.

A few years ago I sent Aubrey to Butterfly camp at both the Museum (more money than you even want to try to picture) and the Butterfly camp with 4H ($15 for a week of 1/2 days).  The pricey camp sent home a few coloring pages, and an explanation that pinning a butterfly is just to difficult for children to do.  In sharp contrast the very inexpensive 4H camp sent home a beautifully pinned gorgeous Luna Moth, with her cocoon, a 5 gallon custom painted bucket filled with butterfly garden plants (many are still alive today with their offspring all around them), a touch-less bug catcher, some other little things, and a great experience with some really nice kids.  Hands down the best value for the money is a day-camp with 4H.

Aubrey and her brothers took these pictures at 4H’s Craft Camp.

    You all do have the best 4H program there. One of the benefits of living near UF.
