Youth will only be guaranteed a spot in a camp once they have paid in full! Families have 3 business days to make their payments. For example, if payments are being mailed, they must be postmarked within 3 business days of your registration date (if I submit my child’s registration on May 3rd, my payment must be postmarked by May 6th, or I must bring payment to the office by May 6th). You may mail in cash or check to Stokes County 4-H PO Box 460, Danbury, NC 27016, or bring it by the office, 700 N Main Street, Danbury, NC 27016 (located in the old Danbury School, behind River Street).
