Forty Tensas Parish youth attended 4-H Camp Grant Walker in Pollock, LA. “Let's have a ball at 4-H Summer Camp” was this year’s theme. The 4-H’ers camped May 27-May 31 with youth from Assumption, Natchitoches, Concordia, Iberia, West Carroll, and Union parishes. Campers participated in activity tracks including Dramatic Arts, Fit 4 the Future, Wetlands, Outdoor Skills, Hunter Safety and Science, Engineering and Technology. They also had recreation time for activities such as swimming, tubing, canoeing, volleyball, water sports, line dancing and arts and crafts. The youth also enjoyed a talent show. Night activities included a dance, movies, swimming or arts and crafts. Camping is one of the most valuable experiences a child can have. It’s a learning experience that helps boys and girls appreciate the outdoors, live together as a group, get along with others and appreciate people with different interests and backgrounds.
Campers attended from Newellton Elementary School, Tensas Elementary, and Tensas Academy. Betsy Crigler, Tensas Parish 4-H Agent appreciates the volunteer leaders that gave a week out of their busy schedules to attend camp. Thanks to Thelma Bradford, Linda Harwell and counselors—Cedrick Morales, Aaron Jackson, LaCoty James and Jerrica Newman.
