Cass County Extension and the Cass County Conservation Board say they have once again teamed-up to offer their annual summer day camp programs to local youth. Officials say there is still time to get registered for several upcoming camps, but registration deadlines are approaching fast, so you shouldn’t delay signing-up.

The “To Earth and Beyond” camp at the Anita Community Center, is for those who have completed 3rd through 5th grade. It will be held on Friday, June 28th, from 8-a.m. to 5-p.m. The camp will explore all of the solar system, landing at Earth at the end of the day to learn about rocks, plates, earthquakes and volcanoes. Participants will learn through hands-on activities, interactive games and creating projects to take home. Registration deadline is Tuesday June 18th.

For older youth interested in fishing, archery, hiking and Dutch oven cookery, the “Outdoor Adventure Camp” is the place to learn. The camp will be held on Tuesday, July 11 from 8-a.m. to 5-p.m., at Cold Springs State Park in Lewis. Outdoor Adventure Camp is for those who have completed 6th, 7th or 8th grades. Registrations for the camp are due by Monday, June 24th.

The cost for either camp is $10 per child. To sign up for a camp, stop by the Cass County Extension Office in Atlantic to fill out a registration and health form, along with a $10 payment, by the deadlines listed.
