The 4-H Farm to Fork Day Camp, sponsored by the Farm Bureau, will take place from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 29, through Thursday, July 31. The camp is for children ages 5 to 13, and will focus on the county’s Scottish Appalachian heritage.

4-Hers will get to have a Scottish experience as they tour a local sheep farm, the Scottish Highlander cattle farm in Haywood County, have afternoon tea at the Herron House, create Scottish crafts, make shortbread, participate in a youth version of the Scottish games and learn about farming and preservation methods used by the early Scottish Appalachian settlers.

The cost is $35 per youth participant that includes materials and lunches. Older youth are welcome to attend the camp as youth leaders. There is no charge to participate in the camp as a youth leader, but an application must be filled out and turned in. Parents are encouraged to accompany children ages 5 to 8.

4-H is free to join and participants must fill out a 4-H enrollment form. To register or for more information about the Haywood County 4-H program, call the Extension Office at 456-3575.
