**At the conclusion of the workshop, there will be an option to stay for the afternoon and become a trained facilitator to lead similar workshops in your community. More information below.

The Project Learning Tree Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood curriculum guide provides an introduction to environmental education for young learners, encouraging children ages 3 to 6 to explore, discover and communicate in expressive ways. The curriculum guide and additional CD include over 130 learning experiences that engage young children in outdoor exploration and play. This workshop will combine the outdoor learning spaces at the NC Zoo with the PLT curriculum guide to provide a professional development event filled with chances to discover your inner child!

This workshop will provide 4.0 CEU hours and 4.0 hours in Criteria II for the NC EE Certification Program. All attendees will leave with the Environmental Experiences for Early Childhood guide AND a code for the K-2 E-Unit, Treemendous Trees!

**We will be hosting a Facilitator Training workshop from 1:30 - 5PM. This additional training will be open to anyone that attends the morning session and would be interested in being certified to host similar workshops in their community on behalf of the NC PLT program. Workshop facilitators are volunteers, but have support from the state NC PLT program. The Facilitator Training will include workshop formats, required paperwork, and support from the state PLT program. If you have questions about becoming a facilitator, please contact PLT State Coordinator, Renee Strnad, at renee_strnad@ncsu.edu

Description: Summer camp is one of the most effective programs offered through 4-H. Each year we travel to either Millstone 4-H Camp in Ellerbe, NC or Betsy Jeff Penn 4-H Camp in Reidsville, NC. In Summer 2019 we will be traveling to Millstone 4-H Camp. 4-H’ers can fund their trip with scholarship money from presentations/project record books, helping sell greenery in November, and writing sponsorship letters to local businesses. This camp is 6 days and 5 nights. Each camper is in a cabin with other kids their age and gender and highly-trained staff members. The 4-H agent is always on-site as well to make pictures, check on youth, and communicate with parents. Youth participate in a wide array of activities including archery, arts and crafts, swimming, canoeing, high ropes, hiking, and more!
