Tell Me Something Good

Real Money, Real World

Things Got REAL with Real Money.Real World

134 Camden County Early College and Camden County High School students learned personal finance with a Real Money. Real World. (RMRW) simulation provided by Camden County Cooperative Extension.
Each student was assigned a career before the simulation. During the simulation the students used their monthly income to purchase goods and services at each booth. The booths provided a variety of services such as transportation, housing,  groceries, child care, utilities, etc. Along with Camden’s Cooperative Extension professionals, local business professionals, county officials, and school officials helped run booths for this simulation.
Comments from students:
“Does it really cost this much money to live?”
“This has been eye opening!”
“It is important to make a budget.”
“Kids are expensive!”

Northeast District 4-H Activity Day

Share a topic you are passionate about at the Northeast 4-H District Activity Day! District Activity Day gives youth an opportunity to do presentations or public speaking on a subject they are passionate about, compete in the outdoor grilling contest, or show off their talent in the talent show. There will be a County Activity Day to practice your presentation. Ms. Marcia will need to register youth for this event by May 23rd, please call for more information.

SPIN Clubs

A 4-H SPIN club is a short commitment with a lasting impact! SPIN Clubs require 6 hours of instruction from our volunteers, so you can do 3 weeks at 2 hours per week, 6 weeks at 1 hour per week or stretch it out at once per month for 6 months. Do you possess a special skill that you would like pass on to our youth? Start a SPIN Club today. Contact Marcia Berry for more information.

Kitchen Tech Series

There are tons of kitchen tools available to the home cook; however, some of the tools can be overwhelming. Even seasoned cooks can be unsure of how to get the most out of their kitchen appliances. N.C. Cooperative Extension has classes to help! For more information and to register visit:
