Registration for Ag Day Camp Is Open!

— Written By

4-H has been educating youth about agriculture for over 100 years. Henderson County 4-H still holds to those roots and teaches youth on the importance of Agriculture, health, and cooking! One primary way this is accomplished is through Henderson County 4-H’s annual Agriculture Day Camp, which will be taking place July 29–August 2 of this upcoming year (2019).
