S.T.E.M. Camp

S.T.E.M. Camp is a 3 day camp for youth ages 5-8 with hands on activities and experiments focused on science, technology, engineering and math. 

Summer Camp

4-H Summer Camp is an overnight camp that takes place each year in August at Camp Anokijig on Little Elkhart Lake in Plymouth, WI. 

Youth ages 9-16 enjoy three nights at camp. Their days are spent doing a variety of activities including swimming, boating, canoeing, archery, horseback riding, low-ropes, team building, and educational crafts. Each evening they enjoy campfires, songs, skits and special themed programs. 

4-H Summer Camp provides leadership training and opportunites for the older youth who, along with 4-H adult volunteers, plan and organize camp activities.
