4-H Summer Day Camp was held at the Luverne Public Library on July 6, 12, and 20. Children from across the county gathered at the library to engage in a wide variety of activities ranging from STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) projects to sewing and cooking. The camp was organized by Heather Sanders, the 4-H Foundation Regional Extension Agent, who also visited Brantley, Luverne, and Highland Home schools to bring STEM activities to students enrolled in their summer programs. According to Sanders, the camp aimed to provide children with the chance to use their creative skills and learn through hands-on activities.

“We had a great time this summer being able to offer a variety of Summer Day Camps,” said Sanders. “The kids were able to use their creative skills to build a rubber band racer, show off their dance skills while learning the bones and the basics of sewing. The kids not only learned lots but had a fantastic time. A special thank you to Ms. Kathryn Tomlin and the Friends of the Library and to Dusty Bagents of Countryside Gardens for their donations of time and supplies.”
