'Something for everyone': Sign-up underway now for 4-H spring break programs

Youth can build roller coasters during Spring Break with 4-H, and they also can explore their family tree, how weather works, and a wide variety of arts and sciences. For workshops and mini-camps near you, visit go.illinois.edu/info4Hdkk and look for the Spring Break section.

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.

To learn about each and find out how to register, visit go.illinois.edu/info4Hdkk and look for the Spring Break section.

If you need a reasonable accommodation to participate in this program, contact your local University of Illinois Extension office. Early requests are strongly encouraged to allow sufficient time for meeting your access needs.
