34 Catahoula Parish 4-H’ers along with 4 Junior Counselors and 3 adult volunteers attended 4-H Camp at Camp Grant Walker Educational Center in Pollock, LA from May 27th – May 31st. While there, these 4th-6th graders chose 1 track from General Arts, Food & Fitness, Hunter Safety, Outdoor Adventures, Science, Engineering & Technology (SET), Water Safety, and Wetlands to participate in every day. They also participated in a variety of recreational activities including archery, arts & crafts, camp carnival games, canoeing/kayaking, tubing, line dancing, sports, swimming and Wii Fit & Fun. Campers also enjoyed cheering on Maggie Thomas (Catahoula 4-H), Hailey Morris (Catahoula 4-H) and other 4-H’ers during the talent show and had a great time creating new 4-H friendships.
Catahoula 4-H’ers were a joy to be around and were so very responsible this year at camp. The boy campers won 3rd Place in the cleanest cabin contest on Wednesday. The girl and boy campers also won 1st place in the cleanest cabin contest on Thursday. Gartarrius Cooper and Kensey Trisler were 2nd and 3rd in the shooting sports track. So very proud of all of our campers this year!
