Time for 4-H camp
I know, I know, you’re thinking: “But it’s not summer yet!” Well, that is true, but registration for 4-H summer camp will begin Feb. 18.
Because 4-H Summer Camp is one of the most important events that 4-H offers for youth, planning has to start early. Camping is one of the most valuable experiences a child can have. It’s a learning experience that helps boys and girls appreciate the outdoors, live together as a group, get along with others and appreciate people with different interests and backgrounds. Many fourth-, fifth- and sixth-grade boys and girls participate in 4-H Summer Camp. The camp is held at the LSU AgCenter’s Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center, an 80-acre campsite located near Pollock, on Highway 8 about 15 miles northeast of Alexandria.
