Thank You!

This has been a great year for Terrebonne Parish 4-H. Many 4-H members have been involved in positive activities to help them stay focused on their future. Thanks to our stars of the 4-H program; our Volunteers Leaders; for all of their time that they dedicate to the youth in the Terrebonne 4-H program. Terrebonne Parish 4-H members are truly the best!

Thanks to you and your parents for your commitment to the program.  We look forward to seeing you all next year. If any of you have suggestions for next year, please call the 4-H office.

Have a Safe and Happy Summer!
Mrs. Cherie and Mrs. Ashly

Lost Camp

Louisiana Outdoor Science and Technology Camp is scheduled for July 30– August 3, 2012 at 4-H Camp Grant Walker. This summer camp experience is being offered to seventh- and eighth-graders as of May 2012. For 4-H’ers who loved going to camp, this is a chance for you to once again experience 4-H summer camp. The tracks will tentatively cover Robotics, Astronomy, GPS, Biology, ATV, Engineering, Myth Busters, Physics, Kitchen Chemistry, Recycling, Energy, Outdoor Skills, Videography, Forensic Science, Explosive Chemistry and Exploring the 5 Senses. The participants will choose three of these available tracks and participate in all three. The camp is held at Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center, in Pollock, Louisiana.

If you are currently enrolled in the seventh or eighth grade and are interested in attending, contact the 4-H office by May 18, 2012 at 873-6495.
