AUBURN UNIVERSITY, Ala. – Alabama 4-H is regretfully suspending 2020 summer camp sessions at the 4-H Center. 4-H will be unable to reschedule camp this year. All fees collected will be refunded.
Molly Gregg, Alabama Extension assistant director of 4-H, said it was a difficult decision and one not taken lightly, but noted the coronavirus outbreak is impacting everyone’s life.
“The health and well-being of our youth, families, volunteers and the general public is of the utmost importance to Alabama 4-H,” said Gregg. “We love our youth and strive to provide safe, fun and educational learning opportunities to all our 4-H members.”
Gregg continued to say summer camp sessions next year will be better than ever. The program has not stopped working to improve camp experience. Construction is currently underway on dining facilities at the 4-H Center as part of an expansion project of The Center of It All capital campaign.
Even though camp sessions were canceled, the Alabama 4-H Center remains open and providing educational outreach as the situation allows.
Alabama 4-H is part of the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and uses regional Extension agents as well as community volunteers, corporate partners, alumni and parents to deliver youth development programs.
