Ninety youth from 12 counties attended the annual 4-H camp recently. This year’s theme was “Sky High.”
Activities included rock climbing, underwater robotics, citizenship, science and technology, crafts, swimming and pythons. Campers had the opportunity to pick one of four track choices – sewing, robotics, sky and space, or film making.
The three-day, two-night camp was for students in grades 3 to 6. Nineteen youth in grades 7 to 12 were trained to be 4-H camp counselors and provided leadership.
4-H is open to anyone in grades 3 to 13. There is also a program for children in kindergarten through 2nd grade called Cloverbuds.
