This summer, there will be two 4-H Day Camps scheduled for third to fifth graders to attend to engage in educational and recreational activities as well as meet with other 4-H members around the county. The day camps are scheduled for the two Tuesdays following the Fillmore County Fair, which are July 29 and Aug. 5. The timeframe for these camps is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
On July 29, the 4-H Day Camp is planned to take place at the Preston Park. Come join in on the fun as a day of activities are planned. The idea of this day camp is for a day of relaxation from the fair, with plans of having fun recreational/outdoor activities and the thought of hopefully being able to swim later on in the afternoon at the Preston Pool, weather permitting. The cost for this camp is $10 including lunch and admission into the pool.
On Aug. 5, the 4-H Day Camp is planned to take place at Forestville State Park. Join campers for a fun-filled day of exploring and learning. A cave tour will be scheduled as well as seeing Historic Forestville and learning a little about past history in southeastern Minnesota. Registration will be $10 and participants should bring a sack lunch to the Day Camp.
If your child(ren) is at all interested in attending any of these day camps, call the Fillmore County Extension Office at (507) 765-3896. If you are interested in attending Historic Forestville on Aug. 5, call early to reserve your spot, so your child may be registered for the day tour. For any other details or questions you may have, contact Will Larson, Fillmore County 4-H Youth Development Intern at the Extension Office or through email at
