Sustainable You! Virtual Summer Camp

The Sustainable You! Summer Camp is an annual event put on by the Ventura County 4-H Program and the City of Ventura. Usually this camp is held at the University of California Hansen Agriculture Research and Extension Center (UC HAREC) in Santa Paula. This year we had the opportunity to host a virtual Summer Camp to maintain the health and safety of our campers and we are excited to share our success and our upcoming virtual After-School Club for ages 9-12.

During the week, campers had the opportunity to learn what it means to be sustainable and protect our environment through fun activities based around the five major themes: Air, Land, Energy, Water, and Food. Each day, our campers would write in their journals, answer questions about the day's theme, and participate in hands-on activities using common items from around the home. 


The teen helpers for this years virtual Sustainable You! Summer Camp have outline the activities of each day on the UCANR website, which you can read HERE.

We were so excited by the success of our virtual summer camp and the engagement of our campers that we are going to be offering virtual After-School Club for ages 9-12 starting on September 29th. You can register HERE.
