St. Helena is proud of the 25 youth in grades 4 - 6 who attended 4-H Camp from June 3-7, 2013, 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.
