4-H2O day camp teaches importance of water

H20 Camp

TIFTON, Ga. (WALB) - Tift County students are learning just how vital water is.

The UGA 4-H extension is hosting an H2O Camp at Black Shank Pavillon in Tifton.

Extension leader Debra Cox said it’s important for youth to know the fundamentals of the natural element.

“Our youth are our future leaders of tomorrow and we want them to understand the importance behind conserving water. The water that we had years ago is the same water that we have here today. It may just be in some different shape or form or fashion. We just want them to understand the importance of good water quality,” said Cox.

This is the third year the camp has been hosted.

Children from nearly 14 counties attend and are taught the importance of conserving water.

Many of the instructors have a professional background in meteorology, agricultural science, education, farming and many others.

Parents can sign their children up to participate in the educational camp for only $25. To find out how to sign up, you can reach out to the Tift County UGA Extension Office.
