4-H Adirondack Guide Program Begins Soon

4h fire startingWarren County 4-H has announced they are accepting registrations for their 2020 Adirondack Guides program.

The program features camping, fire starting, map and compass skills, outdoor cooking, wildlife identification, hiking, and more, and is open to all youth between the ages of 12-19.

Youth will have the opportunity to go on 2-3 camping trips per year and to attend environmental education programs once a month between the months of April-October. Enrollment in Warren County 4-H is required, but also allows participation in any age appropriate classes 4-H has to offer throughout the year. Enrollment for the year is $10 per youth, or $15-30 per family. Some events require a program fee to cover the cost of food, or canoe and campsite rentals.

A new 4-H Adirondack Guide orientation program will be held on the evening of Thursday, January 30th, from 6:30 to 7:30 pm. All prospective or interested youths and their families are welcome to attend. Pre-registration is required, and there is no cost for this event.
