One of the important things children learn from camp is to be self-sufficient. That is, they learn they can survive for four whole days on their own.
4-H Summer Camp is held at the LSU AgCenter's Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center located at 3000 Highway 8, Pollock, LA about 15 miles northeast of Alexandria.
The camp week lasts for four days, starting on Monday afternoon when the children arrive at camp and ending on Friday morning after breakfast. 4-H Agents, volunteer leaders and teen counselors from each parish attend and stay in the cabins with the campers.
Registration, cabin assignment, swim test, counselor meeting, track selection and night time recreation.
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday:
After breakfast, campers participate in one of 7 educational tracks: Science, Engineering & Technology, Outdoor Adventures, Hunter Safety, Louisiana Wetlands, Water Safety, Food & Fitness, and General Arts.
Campers will have recreational time to engage in kickball, volleyball, archery, basketball, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddle boarding and line dancing. Other choices include team building activities, performing arts, visiting with friends, and shopping for souvenirs in the camp store. Evening programs consist of skits, talent shows, vespers, and special guest speakers.
