Do you have a child in 4th-8th grade? If so, we hope you will consider sending them to 4-H Camp this summer! 4-H Summer Camps are 5 day, 4 night residential camps hosted at one of the five centers operated by Georgia 4-H.

Camp Registration Process
To register, you will need to go online to t.uga.edu/8Y9 and select the event you wish to register your child to attend. Then, create a “parent account” in your name. Once that account is created, you will need to add your children as “members”. You will then be able to search “Tattnall” and pull back up the course options. Select the course you want and “Add to Cart”. At the checkout step, you will need to add the “member” so the system knows what child is attending camp. You should then be able to check-out. If you have issues with the online registration system, feel free to come by the Extension Office and we can register you in person. In-person payments must be made in cash or check.
Fundraiser Opportunity – Donut Sale
Youth who wish to raise money for camp have the opportunity to participate in the Krispy Kreme Donut Fundraiser. They can sell boxes of original glazed donuts for $10\box. This year, we are also offering the opportunity to sell Certificates for a box of glazed donuts. These certificates are good in any state and have no expiration date, which is a great option for family and friends who live out of town. 4-H youth can download sales forms here. The sales packet has directions on how the sale works, as well as deadlines for submitting orders and for donut & certificate pick-up.
