Northeast District 4-H Science Camp

— Written By and last updated by

The Northeast District Science Camp will be held July 15th-18th, 2018, in Rocky Mount NC.

This year NC Cooperative Extension will offer a national award-winning program known as My Preparedness Initiative (MyPI NC). This innovative three-part program, focused on Emergency Preparedness and Leadership empowers NC Teens to engage their families, their peers, and their communities in disaster readiness and response. Youth ages 12-18 will have the opportunity to enhance their leadership, communication and decision-making skills while simultaneously building a life-saving skill set that includes basic first aid, fire safety and suppression, search and rescue techniques, and disaster medical operations.

Participants in this year’s NED Science Camp will complete the first and second components of MyPI NC which includes Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) training, sponsored by the Federal Emergency Management Agency; a disaster simulation exercise; a specialized technology module demonstrating the technology available for disaster response; and participate in a Career Track that focuses on the emergency management, public safety and fire service careers.

The third component of MyPI is the “PREP + 6” community service project in which each participant works with their 4-H Agent and the MyPI certified instructor to help develop emergency supply kits and emergency communication plans for their household and six other households in their neighborhood/community. Participants must complete all three components in order to receive their MyPI certification and their personal disaster response ready bag.

Pre-registration for the science camp is required by May 15th.
