Yesterday, 4-H staff across the state of Georgia received notification that Georgia 4-H in cooperation with the University of Georgia had made the decision to cancel all statewide 4-H face-to-face programming, which includes 4-H Summer Camp and the State 4-H Horse Show. A few events, including State Council and State Congress, will be postponed to a later date. While this decision is sad to many, we believe it was made with the best interest of our 4-H’ers health and safety in mind.
Tattnall County Extension will be individually contacting youth who were registered for these events to confirm payment history and send full refunds of payments made for these events. The Extension Office staff is still working on a limited in-person operation schedule due to COVID-19. This may cause the refund process to take longer than it normally would. We ask for your patience and understand as we work to make camp and event refunds over the next few weeks.
On a positive note, we are excited to announce that Tattnall County 4-H is planning a very exciting week of summer camp themed activities to include some informational videos, but also a lot of at home activities and challenges for youth. We hope to embody the “spirit” of 4-H Camp as best we can for the youth. Camp will be open to any Tattnall County 4th-12th grade youth. More information on registering for the Virtual 4-H Camp Week will be shared soon!
