Looking for something local to do for spring break? Join some of our enthusiastic Extension Master Gardener Volunteers (EMGV) at their “Nature at Home” Jr. Master Gardener spring break camp!

During CCS’s 2024 spring break, the EMGV are hosting a fun-filled week at the Chatham County Ag Center (1192 US 64W Business, Suite 400,
Pittsboro, NC). The camp will be April 1 – 5 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m., for youth ages 8 – 14 with a cost of $75. 

Come and learn about plants, insects, soil, ecology, and more through games and hands-on activities. Think planting, butterfly nets and make your own pizza! The theme this year is Nature at Home – campers will take away ideas that can be implemented at home. A field trip to the NC Botanical Garden (transportation provided) is a much-anticipated part of the camp activities. Wear comfortable, weather-appropriate clothing and close-toed shoes to be prepared for an awesome week! Enrollment space is limited, so don’t wait to sign up!
