Ninety-one of Warren County's fourth- through sixth-graders started their week off right on June 3 at 9 a.m. as they boarded the bus for the trip to 4-H Junior Camp at Clyde M. York Camp in Crossville. In search of fun experiences, making new friends and gaining lifetime memories, they can now say their searches are complete.
At the beginning of the week, pool time and centers were the kick off for activities. During the entire week, kids could visit centers as much as they would like to perfect their skills in that area.
Some of the centers provided included canoeing, archery, riflery, fishing, basketball, and many, many more. Pool time was available twice a day and many kids took advantage of that opportunity every time. Also available was a woodworking shop, wildlife habitat, leather and craft shop, and tie dying.
At the end of each day a different night activity was experienced. A talent show where campers could perform in front of the other 300 4-Hers was enjoyed by all. Singing around the camp fire and making s’mores was a hit, but not as big as the big dance on Thursday night.
Teen leaders donating their time and skills to the camp were Jacob Dodd, Lyndi Dodd, Sierra Pedigo, Heather Colwell and Chase Board. Adult leaders were David Hitchcock, Jacqueline Hitchcock, John Duncan, Dusti Hubbard and Joann Barnes. The group of volunteers and campers came home with memories and stories to re-live for some time to come.
