St. Helena 4-Hers Attend Summer Camp

St. Helena Campers
St. Helena is proud of the 30 youth in grades 4 - 6 who attended 4-H Camp from June 6 - 10, 2011, Grant Walker Educational Center in Pollock, Louisiana.  4-H Summer Camp is more than just fun and games. 4-H Camp strives to develop a variety of life skills related to Head, Heart, Hands and Health. One of the most important skills children learn from camp is self-sufficiency. That is, they learn how to survive four whole days on their own.

According to LSU, here is what campers learned:
100% learned to do their share when working with others.
98% met new people they would like to stay in touch with and want to go back to camp next year.
93% learned to complete jobs they were responsible for and the importance of being on time.
