Encouragement for youth helps academically, socially and develops skills.
Lincoln Parish 4-H will be offering a day camp July 16-17, 2013 at Lincoln Parish Park. The youth of today are in need of experiencing outdoor life especially since they are so involved with computers, games, and other electronic devices that they are not familiar with their need to get involved in outdoors. Outdoor life helps a wide range of health benefits, such as stronger bones, lower cancer risks, longer attention spans, better grades, longer lifespan, and many more.
What 4-H does for youth and what a difference it can make in a young person's life greatly affects our community. It teaches them to be confident and gain knowledge in leadership skills and guidance that will stay with them from now on.
Information for all parents of campers attending the Lincoln Parish 4-H Summer Camp with us on June 3-7, 2013.

To quote the 4-H motto, “To Make the Best Better”. When a youth enters 4-H beginning in 4th grade we get to work with them until they graduate high school. During this time we are fortunate to be able to watch them grow, learn, and mature into fabulous young people. The pride that we have for these young people is immeasurable. We have this situation this year with one of our Lincoln Parish 4-H members, Ms Lacie Johnson, a senior at Simsboro High School.

This cool drink is super because it has two foods that give you nutrients. Did you ever think of putting milk and orange juice together?
We strive to give youth the tools they need to have a desire to change the world for the better. Do we sometimes sell our youth short by telling them that this feat is impossible just to avoid the disappointment they may experience if their attempt were to not work?
