From acting to weather, the tri-county 4-H program has a workshop or mini-camp to offer your family this spring. These interactive opportunities are designed to help youth to grow in a specific area of study or to try something new.
“These workshops and mini-camps all have a fun, hands-on approach targeted at helping kids build knowledge and skills,” said Amy Henschen, 4-H youth educator with University of Illinois Extension of DuPage, Kane and Kendall counties. “There is something for everyone. We have multiday sessions where kids can explore something in-depth, as well as single-session workshops that focus on a specific activity. Plus, we strive to keep the excitement high and costs low, and youth do not need to be 4-H members to participate.”
These learning opportunities feature topics such as robotics, heritage/genealogy, engineering, meteorology, environmental science/ornithology, critical thinking/mathematics, sewing/fashion, leathercraft and theatre arts. Different options are available in each office: Naperville, St. Charles and Yorkville.
