EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - Middlesex County boys and girls who have completed grades 3 through 6 are invited to take part in Middlesex County 4-H’s Explorations Week day camp program.

The Explorations Week (E-Week) program, hosted by the Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development program, will run Monday, July 11 to Friday, July 15, with sessions lasting from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. All sessions will be held at the 4-H Youth Center located at 645 Cranbury Rd. in East Brunswick.

The program aims to help the campers in several key ways: encourage creativity, promote self-confidence, help them make new friends and achieve a sense of accomplishment. The theme of this year’s E-Week will be the Olympics.

Attendees can choose from a wide variety of daily activities, such as rocketry, theater, archery, scrapbooking, dance, cheerleading, wilderness survival and biking. Friday night includes an optional sleepover with campfire and dinner.

“Programs like these are not only fun, but also aid the development of social interaction and other important life skills,” said Freeholder Kenneth Armwood, Chair of the County’s Business Development and Education Committee. “E-Week is a testament to Middlesex County’s mission to help our youth to learn, grow and approach the future with confidence.” 

“I hope many families will take advantage of this opportunity for a summer of outdoor fun and creative activities,” said Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios. “Rutgers Cooperative Extension’s 4-H Youth Development program continues to provide the best in educational and family-friendly programs.”

The price of the program is $160 for 4-H members and $170 for non 4-H members. This price covers program materials, daily lunch, T-shirt and field trip. Arrangements can be made for early or late arrivals. The cost for this service is a one-time fee of $25 per child.

To register, call 732-398-5261.

In past years, as many as 130 youths took part in this weeklong program. About 30 volunteer teen and adult counselors help plan, implement and evaluate the program. Each of these volunteers donates over 80 hours of their time during E-Week. 

Middlesex County 4-H is a Department of Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Middlesex County and offers educational programs to all youth, grades K through 13 on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or disability.
