These classes are described as hands-on, experiential learning programs for the whole family, geared towards 5-17 year olds (children will be grouped with children of similar ages). Parents accompany children to classes. Families stay together in dorms or cabins, meals are provided in the dining halls. Class topics include marsh ecology, orienteering, herpetology, beach ecology, pioneer studies, etc. Through environmental education, Georgia 4-H centers aim to inspire youth with a love for learning by using the outdoors as a “classroom without walls” filled with unique learning opportunities.
