Environmental Education Classes The Environmental Education Program at the Burton 4- H Center combines Georgia’s barrier island location and the Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) to provide a classroom enrichment field study for students in 6 th grade. Class selection will be determined by the 6 th grade teacher’s scheduling discretion. We will choose 5 day classes for the 3 day/2 night program. These are 2-hour classes. For evening program, they will teach two one-hour evening classes.

Burton 4-H Center is not responsible for lost or stolen items. We hold classes in rain or shine (only lightning brings us in) so pack accordingly and be prepared. IMPORTANT: Please limit luggage to one suitcase, backpack or duffel bag, plus one sleeping bag or bed roll. Pack only old clothes suitable for outdoor use. Label all belongings. Only old clothes are needed. New clothes may be ruined by heavy outdoor use! Multiple layers will keep one warmer than a single heavy one.
General Rules 1. Listen to instructors or adults. A raised hand indicates it is time to listen. 2. Shoes must be worn at all times unless you are in your dorm or on the sand volleyball court. Flip‐flop sandals are only for inside the dorms. 3. When the bell rings everyone should walk immediately to either: 1) the bell when time for a meal or 2) their group’s meeting spot when time for class. 4. No running, climbing, or bouncing balls on A‐frame. 5. No students allowed on the dock or forest trail without adult supervision. 6. No running. 7. Quiet hours are from 10 p.m. – 7 a.m. Students must be in dorms and quiet. 8. Students should not have any electronic equipment such as music players or cell phones. Cameras are fine but we recommend disposable ones because students will be getting dirty and wet.
Dorm Rules: 1. Students are responsible for cleaning dorms before departing. Chaperones shall supervise, instruct, and help with use of cleaning supplies. Dorm cleaning instructions are on the dorms front door. A bucket of cleaning supplies is found in the chaperone bathroom. Dorms shall be inspected and approved by a Burton 4‐H Center staff member before the group departs. 2. Rinse off sand and mud outside the dorm at hoses and outdoor showers. Rinsing sand and mud off in dorm sinks and showers will lead to clogged drains. 3. Students shall not go into dorms unless there is an adult present. Only go into your assigned dorm. 4. Students should not go behind dorms. 5. No food, drink or spraying bug repellant or sun block in dorms. 6. Do not leave money in dorms.
Class Time Rules: 1. You must prepare for class once your previous activity is done. This includes going to the bathroom, getting water, putting on the correct shoes, and appropriate clothing. When the bell rings for class go immediately to your group’s meeting spot. 2. For MARSH ECOLOGY class, closed toed shoes must be worn. The best options are old sneakers or rubber boots. 3. For SURF SLEUTH class, shoes must be worn in the water and they must have a tight strap so they will not fall off. The best options are sneakers, water shoes, or sandals with a tight back strap. Crocs or flip flops are not permitted. Also, everyone must wear shirts and shorts at all times. It is recommended to wear a swimming suit under your clothes. 4. No swimming at any time in any Burton 4‐H Center class.
