Georgia 4-H will host a 3-day camp at Moody Air Force Base for school-age youth. The camp will focus on Environmental Science based on the currently enrolled youth interest. Each day will cover a new theme for youth to interact with their environment. School-age youth will be grouped into similar age groups to enhance their educational experience in addition to whole-camp activities. Activities will include exploring ecosystems, the water cycle, soil, pollinator habitats, pollution, and more important environmental topics.
Georgia 4-H Agents, staff, and teen leaders from Worth, Lanier, and Lowndes will support the implementation of the day camp. Additionally, the Georgia 4-H Military Liaison and Moody AFB will also create a fun, safe, and educational experience.
The 4-H Military Partnership is supported by the U. S. Department of Agriculture, National Institute of Food and Agriculture, 4-H National Headquarters; U.S. Army Child, Youth and School Services; U. S. Department of the Air Force Child and Youth Programs; U.S. Navy Child and Youth Programs; and the Land Grant University Cooperation Extension 4-H Program through grant funding at Kansas State University.
