Summer Programs

We are excited to bring back Appanoose County 4-H Summer Day Camps for 2023. We have an awesome line up of day camp offerings planned that will be taking place throughout the summer that you aren't going to want to miss out on!

We have a variety program offerings available for K-7th graders; these day camps are open to Appanoose County 4-H and Clover Kids along with non-members. Check out our Day Camp Flyers for more information!


  • To register you will need to complete the attached registration form and turn it and the payment into the Appanoose County Extension Office to guarantee your spot. Due to the our meeting room space each offering will be limited to the first 12 participants that turn in their completed registration form and payment. We will be limiting day camp participation to 2 offerings per child throughout the summer. If your child would like to attend more than 2 they will be placed on a waiting list for the additional camps and be contacted if the spots are not filled.
