Seventy Caldwell 4-H members along with agent Jana Bennett, two adult volunteers and seven youth volunteers attended 4-H Summer Camp at Camp Grant Walker in Pollock where they spent a week swimming, canoeing, creating and learning. During this week long adventure, Caldwell camped with other Louisiana 4-H'ers from St. Helena, Red River, Bienville, Lincoln, Grant, Union and Ouachita parishes. The summer camping season started on May 21 and ended on July 27 offering nine weeks of 4-H camp for youth in grades four to six. The five day program offered morning educational tracks, supervised afternoon recreational activities and free time to explore a variety of interests that encouraged creativity, communication and problem-solving. Campers chose one of seven educational tracks to attend each day, including outdoor skills, water safety, Louisiana wetlands, general arts, food and fitness, hunter education and science, engineering and technology. The Hathorn Fitness and Nature Trail, swimming in the creek and an enhanced all-terrain vehicle safety course were new on the camp agenda this year. Approximately 3,000 youth from across Louisiana attended the 2018 4-H camp.
