In and effort to “give young kids something to do,” the Junior Leaders of the Sheridan County 4-H program are hosting a one-day Science Camp later this month.
There is always something for young people to do, if staff and volunteers with the 4-H programs have anything to say about it.
14-year-old Gabrielle Koltiska has been involved in 4-H since she was 9, and recently became a Junior Leader.
While many people may think of 4-H as being more agriculturally focused, on Wednesday, June 22nd, the Junior Leaders, about ten in total, will be assisting elementary students at a Science Camp. Gabrielle explains.
In speaking with Gabrielle – who jokes that her parents, Justin and Jodell Koltiska named her appropriately because she's always talking – one is struck by her poise and her confidence. She credits 4-H.>
Of the many things she's been involved with, she ranks riding horses at the top of the list, and has a goal of becoming a veterinarian.
As for the 4-H Science Camp, it is open to twenty kids, ages 5 to 8, and the deadline to sign up for it is June 17th. Call (307) 674-6421.
The actual camp will take place on Wednesday, June 22nd from 9 am to 2 pm. The fee is $20 and will cover the cost of supplies. While snacks will be provided, the kids are asked to bring a sack lunch.
In partnership with the Sheridan Rec. District, the camp will be held at the Rec. District community center, located in the old Woodland Park Elementary School on South Coffeen Avenue.
