The Wise County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office is hosting a Do It Yourself Day Camp on Mondays this summer. Join us as we create new treasures by recycling old, learn the basics (and create something fun) in Sewing 101, get your hands dirty while gardening, experience life as a robotic and rocket engineer, become mad scientists and create culinary masterpieces in the kitchen.
The cost is $15 per session or $80 for all seven sessions. The D.I.Y Monday Day Camp is open to all youth ages 8 to 12 and will be held from 1 to 5 p.m. on the Tuesdays listed below.
