“We have a lot of project clubs – it focuses on something like beef, mutton, pork, goat, horses and shooting sports,” Mosley said in his presentation.
The clubs met through Zoom last year and have recently started meeting in person again.
“We’re so grateful for the Carver Center’s 4H room, the cafeteria, where it’s so big we can lay out to meet the guidelines,” Mosley said.
The online format, which included creating a YouTube Culpeper 4H page and using Google Classrooms, worked well, she added, but was not ideal for collective hands-on learning.
Summer camp season is back and fast approaching, Mosley said, with the local session taking place June 13-17 overnight at Front Royal’s Northern Virginia 4H Center and all local plazas nearly full since the last week. Camp was canceled last year and capacity this year is limited to 50%, Mosley said. Culpeper County 4H will also have limited day programs this summer due to more stringent guidelines.
“Because kids come and go in their homes and we have to get COVID screenings every day, we’ll be doing the on-the-go camp kits that we did last year,” Mosley said of the offer that includes activity, YouTube links, and supplies. “We will do three.”
As for the Culpeper-Madison-Rappahannock 2021 Farm Show, it is a chance for young exhibitors, she said.
