In an effort to continue summer camps while also following guidance for social distancing, Iowa State University Extension and Outreach youth staff in Northwest Iowa have created Clover Crates,  take-home camps with optional virtual components, which will replace our in-person camps for 2020.
Clover Crates enable youth to participate in the camp activities from home with the option to connect virtually with other youth, guided by our summer educators.   There are activities available for those who have completed 1st-3rd grade and those who have completed 4th grade and up.
Registration and Pick Up:
Sign-up for Clover Crates online at https://www.jotform.com/201486841030044 or by contacting Carroll County  ISU Extension and Outreach office at 712-792-2364.
Registration is on a first come, first served basis so register TODAY!!  Crates cost $10 each and only 15 crates will be put together for each activity.  Registration deadline is Friday, June 26th at 4:30 p.m.
After you register for Clover Crate(s), staff will email you with information about picking up and participating in the activities. Pickup location will be the Extension Office. Inside of each Clover Crate, you will find supplies for the camp activities along with directions and information related to connecting with our summer educators virtually.
