From August 6-10, 20 campers and 7 youth counselors from across NCC gathered at University of Delaware’s Townsend Hall for the first ever NCC 4-H Animal Science Day Camp. Throughout the week campers experienced a variety of animal science related activities. Campers went on a field trip to Herringswell Stables, home of the 2011 Kentucky Derby winner, Animal Kingdom. University of Delaware staff and professors held a variety of learning sessions covering various topics including equine science, dairy science, and poultry science. The youth completed their week-long adventure with a quiz bowl demonstrating the knowledge and expertise of certain animal science topics.
