College graduations, high school graduations, the last day of school, and then it is here – the long awaited for break every student looks forward to – summer. I must admit, since the hurricane I have been doing less looking forward and planning for the future and more enjoying the here and now. It’s time for all of that to change.

In the here and now, we will be celebrating our Robeson County 4-H members on June 5 when we present them with their cords and tassels. You can easily recognize them at graduation with these wonderful green and white accessories that are the colors of 4-H. We could not be prouder of these youth who are prepared to move on and be successful in our world or more excited to see how they will conquer it.

On June 9, we will officially start our 4-H Summer Fun Program with our Etiquette Day Camp. This is not your grandmother’s etiquette program where you learn about raising a pinky while drinking tea from a china cup. This etiquette program does include the old standbys of table manners, greetings, and how to properly sit. However, it also includes cell phone and online etiquette, dressing for success, and allows participants to practice skills like how to juggle a plate of appetizers and a cup of punch while shaking someone’s hand when there is no place to sit. On top of that, we have a little fun too.

Some of our other offerings this summer include a day camp at Camp Millstone. It’s everything you can think of when you think camp. Swimming, archery, and canoeing are just some of the things they will enjoy. If you think they will really like that, then think about sending them with us for a week to overnight camp at Betsy-Jeff Penn. They will come back exhausted but filled with all the lessons and fun camp offers. Also, we have Arts and Crafts Day Camp. If you have a creative child, this might just be for them as they learn about different crafts and how to make a living, and a difference in our world, doing them.If you are interested in planning your child’s summer, check out what 4-H has to offer. Our summer program can be found on our website at robeson.ces.ncsu.edu. It’s time we started planning ahead for our children’s futures.
