4-H Fund-raiser at Edwardo's Print E-mail

4-H is collaborating with Northern Elementary to allow the 4th graders to attend 4-H Environmental Camp on April 12 and 13 at North Central Camp Ground in Carlisle, Ky. However, with any overnight field trip there are expenses and fees to pay for lodging, food, and programs. Edwardo’s Pizza and Subs has agreed to host a fundraiser buffet from 6–8 p.m. on Wednesday, March 13 in which 10% of the profits and all waitress tips will go towards a fund to help lower the cost for the Northern Elementary 4th graders to attend the camp.

Environmental Camp allows kids to rotate through 5-8 classes that are taught by environmental camp interns, UK specialists, teachers, and other outside instructors. Some of the potential topics they will learn about are:

birds and insects

create paper rockets to shoot off with a rocket launcher

furs and animal hides

team building and low ropes activities

bee keeping

reptile program from the KY Reptile Zoo.

Besides the educational portion of the camp, the kids will also get to be a part of the evening hike, campfire and make S'mores.  Unfortunately, many kids never have the opportunity to have a camping experience. This certainly allows them that chance and the excitement of staying overnight in cabins and learning about nature and its amazing environmental components.

Dine in or order out from Edwardo’s Pizza & Subs on Wednesday, March 13th  to enjoy a delicious meal and help support 4-H in sending 88 fourth graders from Northern Elementary to Environmental Camp.
