2012 4-H Summer Camp
It is that time again to sign up for the 2012 4-H Summer Camp. As many past campers will say, it is what they look forward to every year, and with good reason. 4-H Summer Camp is a great time to have fun, socialize, meet new friends, and make memories for a lifetime.  No matter what your interest is, there is something at camp for you, whether it is outdoor activities, sports, or swimming. Campers also participate in pool and field Olympics, as well as camp fire activities.
Below is general information that you should know in preparing for summer camp. 4-H Camp applications are available at the Harrison County Extension Office. If you would like a packet mailed, call the office at 234-5510. Remember, there are limited spots available for both campers, teens, and adults. Return completed packets as soon as possible to the Extension Office.  
The 2012 4-H Summer Camp is scheduled for June 26-29 at the North Central 4-H Camp in Carlisle Ky. for Harrison, Franklin, Scott, Woodford, and Owen counties.

2012 4-H Fashion Revue
Harrison County 4-H has many strong traditions that have developed over the years, possibly none stronger than the clothing, textiles, and modeling program. Due to strong volunteer and community support, the 2012 program had over 50 participants. Youth from ages 9-19 put in endless hours with dedicated volunteers to design and construct articles of clothing and apparel ranging from gloves and scarfs to prom dresses and business attire.
There were 14 crocheting, five knitting, and 40 sewing articles submitted for judging and evaluation for the Harrison County 4-H Fashion Review week held on April 17-19. The week accumulated on Friday, April 20 with the 2012 Harrison County Style Review Contest, held at the Harrison County High School auditorium. We would like to thank all of the participants, committee chair Harlene Welch, and all of the volunteers, parents, and community supporters who help to continue this great 4-H program.
If you would like to become involved as a volunteer with the 4-H Clothing, Textiles, and Modeling program or other 4-H activities, call the Harrison County Extension Office at 234-5510.
