As a kick-off to the new school year, 4-H offers middle school students the opportunity to have fun with science by attending the annual 4-H LOST (Louisiana Outdoor Science and Technology) Camp. This educational camp is a 4-day, 3-night adventure for 7th-8th graders (as of May 2018). Campers enjoy interactive recreational activities such as swimming, canoeing/kayaking, archery, volleyball, dancing, arts and crafts, and much more. While at 4-H LOST Camp, campers select 3 educational tracks in which they participate in fun activities each morning that are focused on that area. The tracks for this year include videography, wetlands, outdoor adventures, SET (science, engineering, and technology), and more! In the evening, campers enjoy free time, which includes hanging out with new friends at the dance, movies, swimming pool, or arts and crafts building.
Attending LOST Camp is a great way to meet new friends from across the state of Louisiana. St. Charles Parish delegates usually travel to and from camp by Charter Bus with other peers from throughout the southeast region. Campers sleep in large, air conditioned cabins at the Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center in Pollock, Louisiana.
