St. Charles 4-H'ers gather for LARGEST camp turnout - ever
Staff Report - Oct 19, 2006
A group of 41 members, counselors and adults from St. Charles Parish recently attended 4-H Summer Camp. The camp, the 4-H Grant Walker Educational Center, is located in Grant Parish about 25 miles north of Alexandria in Pollock. Other parishes attending with St. Charles were: St. John, Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard, Plaquemine, East Baton Rouge and St. Landry. This was one of the largest summer camp groups for these parishes due to the addition of St. Landry. Administrators were fearful that the Metro area parishes would not bring as many kids due to the destruction of the area by Hurricane Katrina but the Metro Parishes each brought nearly their regular numbers!
At the camp, members had the opportunity to select educational tracks in which they received nine hours of instruction; three hours in the morning each day on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The educational tracks included: dramatic arts in which members could learn how to put on a play and practice their acting talents, outdoor adventures in which they could shoot bows and rifles: wet and wild nature adventures in which they could explore how the outdoor environment and plants and animals interact, tech world where they could learn to use GPS's to build Amusement Parks and other structures and food and nutrition where they could learn how health and nutrition benefit each other.
