Wayne County 4-H has planned a Jr. Leader ski retreat on January 16-18th at Cragmont in Black Mountain. The retreat is open to youth in the 6th grade or older. All South East District 4-H’ers are invited to attend the retreat. We will be teaching a new Science curriculum, Team Building and a short prevention activity. We have enclosed an agenda for you.
Cost for the retreat is $95.00 which includes lodging, skies and lift tickets along with dinner on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday, and Monday breakfast. Participants will be responsible for lunch on Saturday, dinner at the ski lodge on Sunday, and lunch on Monday on the way home. A NON-REFUNDABLE deposit of $40 is due to Mrs. Blair by December 29th. The remaining balance of $55 is due January 5th.
We will depart from the Brunswick County Center early morning on Saturday, January 16th. We will return in the evening on Monday, January 18th. We will be staying at Cragmont Assembly which is a church camp. There will be other people staying at the camp so it is important that we represent 4-H well. The phone number for Cragmont is (828) 669-7677 to be used only in an emergency. We will be skiing Sunday afternoon and night at Cataloochee Ski Resort.
Space for this trip will be limited and on a first come first serve basis.
To help cover the cost of the ski trip, a Krispy Kreme fundraiser will take place on Dec. 21. Youth should ask local businesses, friends, and family to commit to buying a dozen (or more!) for $5 for delivery on Monday morning. Report your pre-sale numbers to the office on Friday the 18th for your order to be placed. A form to keep track of your sales is available on the Krispy Kreme website by clicking on ‘Fundraisers” then fundraising forms. We (Blair or myself) will pick up the doughnuts (and some extras for ‘on the spot’ sales) in Wilmington that morning. A specific pickup time will be given when you order is placed on Friday.
