Come get your hands in the soil and learn how soils impact and determine how we farm in Lee County. Join us on a trip to NC State and to a local farm. Explore with us how technology is being used.

Each day teams will focus on basic cooking techniques such as roasting, marinating, grilling, baking, steaming, and sautéing. Showcase your talents the last day during the Cook Smart Eat Smart Teen Challenge. Teams will be given the opportunity to compete in planning, budgeting, shopping, and preparing meals. The winning team will go on to compete in our county competition on August 14th, (9 a.m.-12) so think positively and go ahead and mark your calendar. The regional competition will be on August 20th in Harnett County.

This Babysitting Class for Youth is designed to help middle school and teenage youth to familiarize themselves with the responsibilities of babysitting, provide the necessary information for them to become capable, caring, trustworthy and responsible sitters, teach the skills and techniques needed for teens to become competent babysitters, help teens develop the confidence needed to handle situations that could happen when they babysit, help teens develop a positive attitude about the care of children, and prepare teens in the business aspects of babysitting.

It is a simple equation busy hands = busy minds. Lee County 4-H is offering 3 days of summer fun and science for our young Cloverbuds! We will use all the senses to explore, create, touch, and learn in this interactive, beginner, STEAM camp. We can’t wait to meet the next generation of 4-H members!
