Chatham County 4-H offers virtual summer camps

Pittsboro, NC – Chatham County 4-H is excited to offer two virtual programs that are free for youth this summer. The first event, Food Around the World, will be held July 6 -10, 2021. The next event, Cloverbud Puppet Masters, will be held on August 4.

Food Around the World is a virtual camp designed for K-12 youth to learn about foods and cultures from around the world. Youth with intermediate experience in the kitchen will get to virtually visit Greece, India, South America, Japan and Italy from the comfort of their own kitchen.

Cloverbud Puppet Masters is a virtual camp for youth ages 5-7. Youth will need tape, glue, scissors, markers, crayons, pencils and pens for this activity. All other materials will be provided to participants for them to craft their own puppet. Participants should wear clothes they do not mind getting crafty in. Web cameras must be turned on to verify that an adult is present, and those found not following the requirements will be removed from the activity.

Adult supervision is required for both programs. To register for these events, individuals may sign up online at Those with questions or needing assistance may contact Liz Mauney at 919-542-8257 or .

4-H is the largest youth development organization in North Carolina, educating hundreds of thousands of young people each year. N.C. Cooperative Extension’s 4-H program is growing the next generation of leaders and equipping youth with the skills to succeed.
