4h_logoPrimghar, Iowa — If you have kids or grandkids, there are many fun and informative opportunities for them this summer through day camps put on by Iowa State University (ISU) Extension and Outreach in northwest Iowa.

O’Brien and Sioux County Youth Program Assistant Beth Bunkers says camps this year will focus on three central themes.

She says the camps range from Robotics to Cooking to Animal Science to Interior Design and much more. According to Bunkers there are about eight to ten camps per category. She says the camps offer something for everyone.

The camps are hosted by ISU Extension and Outreach’s 4-H Youth Development Program; however, youth do not have to be 4-H members to attend. She says the camps are half-day camps for the younger kids, full day camps for the older kids, and there are multiple-day camps but campers go home every night.

She reminds parents that camps fill up quickly, so it is important to register your child(ren) early to guarantee a spot. Bunkers also says that camps are open to kids from anywhere, so if if works better to attend a camp in another county, that’s fine.

To view a complete listing of the camps being offered, visit www.extension.iastate.edu/obrien/content/2017-summer-camps or stop into your local ISU Extension and Outreach office to pick up a booklet.
