Mud, butter and goats...oh, my. 4-H campers recently discovered "farmtastic fun" at a day camp at Evansville Public School.

They learned about farm life through crafts, games and even meeting some animals. Ashley from Farm Safety 4 Just Kids came with goats and dogs to teach about animal safety. Campers enjoyed feeding the goats and playing with the pups.

After grocery bingo at Nelson's Store, campers made butter from supplies bought on a field trip.
