Members of youth organizations across Door and Kewaunee counties are seeing signs of normalcy after the pandemic forced many of their activities to be held virtually.
Members of Girl Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Scouts USA are slowly returning to in-person meetings and outdoor activities. Both the Girl Scouts of Northwestern Great Lakes and Bay-Lakes Council BSA are looking forward to hosting camps for their members this summer with some COVID-19 considerations still in place.
4-H clubs in Kewaunee County are also returning to more in-person activities with some hybrid options also in place for those who do not feel comfortable yet. It comes at a time when kids are working hard on fair exhibits and other projects with people they may have not been able to interact with at 4-H functions in some time. Kewaunee County 4-H Educator Jill Jorgensen says their clubs did a great job adjusting to the situation along the way but adds that you can see extra enthusiasm among its members.
Jorgensen is hopeful for the fall when youth organizations like 4-H typically ramp up their recruitment efforts. Kewaunee County 4-H’s annual Time and Talent event will also look a little closer to normal compared to last year when it takes place on Sunday at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds beginning at 10 a.m.
