Through the generous support of the Vesper Society, the University of California Cooperative Extension of Imperial County 4-H Youth Development Program was able to deliver the second annual 4-H Sustainable You! Day Camp. With more than 30 campers and more than 17 youth staff the camp was a huge success. The youth staff partnered with 4-H, UC CalFresh, and UC FarmSmart staff to deliver quality programming that centered on healthy communities and our environment.
Each day had a different focus or theme, which included air, water, land, energy and food. Each theme had several lessons and hands-on activities which youth staff delivered to campers. Day one focused on air. The campers learned all about air quality and the impact pollutants have on the air we breathe. Campers were given journals with broad concepts each day and at the end of the camp day they would be given the same questions to reflect how their answers may have changed and what they may have learned.
