4-H Summer Day Camps for Students at Sebring Schools

Summer Day Camp

June 23, 2022


The Ohio State University Extension - Mahoning County is hosting free 4-H Summer Day Camps for area students.

The events in Sebring kicked off last week, with day camps for students in 3rd-7th and 8th-12th grades. 

At B.L. Miller Elementary School, staff from the Ohio State Extension - Mahoning County worked with students as they explored topics related to nature, including plants and weather. Students got their hands dirty planting their own parsley seeds to take home and nurture. 

“The camp is a program we designed after receiving a Summer Learning and Afterschool Opportunities Grant from the Ohio Department of Education,” says Kristen Eisenhauer, Extension Educator Mahoning County. “The goal of these grants is to provide summer hands-on learning opportunities to youth who were heavily affected by remote learning due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Our camps provide themed opportunities for students to explore STEAM-based 4-H curriculum in a fun and safe environment.”

The program features three different sessions for each age range throughout the summer. The day camps are free to area students and include lunch. Upcoming sessions at Sebring include:

  • Rockets: Grades 3 - 7 | Thursday, July 14, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Rockets: Grades 8 - 12 | Thursday, July 21, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • Future Readiness: Grades 8 - 12 | Tuesday, August 4, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
  • STEAM: Grades 3 - 7 | Tuesday, August 9, 2022 | 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

The Extension office is also hosting the same series of day camps at Struthers High School, as well as many other summer opportunities.
