This summer, Terrebonne 4-H members have the opportunity to attend summer camp June 8-12, 2020. 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.
Many 4th, 5th and 6th grade boys and girls participate in 4-H Camp Grant Walker. The camp is held at the LSU AgCenter’s Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center, an 80-acre campsite located near Pollock, LA, on Highway 8 about 15 miles northeast of Alexandria.
4-H camp begins on Monday and campers return home on Friday. Transportation is provided to and from camp.
If you are a 4-H member in 4th-6th and you are interested in attending 4-H summer camp you must complete a Summer Camp Application and return it to the 4-H office. You can get the application from your club leader or the 4-H office. Applications are due to the 4-H office by February 7, 2020. The application lets us know that you are interested in attending camp. Once applications are retuned, we send invitations. The invitations are sent based on parish/state 4-H participation and school representation.
Adult Volunteer space is limited. If you are interested, please make a comment on your child’s 4-H Camp Application. The 4-H office will contact you if needed.
Youth Counselors are needed. 4-H Members 10th –12th grade should complete an application. You can contact Mrs. Cherie if interested.

Terrebonne 4-H members have been doing a great job growing leaders through community service. We are encouraging you to continue to make a positive change in our community by participating in our “4-H Layers of Love” drive. We are asking each school 4-H club to make one (or more) fleece blanket to donate. The blankets will be donated to special needs people within the community.
Follow these simple steps as a club to make a fleece blanket:
Check the web for more instructions if needed. Search no-sew fleece blankets.
Please do not add embellishments such as buttons, glitter, beads, or sequence. Iron-on’s and embroidery are OK.
Roll up the blanket and attach a tag with a ribbon or other material. Please do not use safety pins to attach the tag. Your tag should have a nice friendly message with your school name and 4-H emblem.
Blankets are due to the 4-H office by February 3, 2020.
* We will also collect the small blankets you can buy for a low cost at most stores. The more blankets we get the more smiles we will see.
Achievement Day is our Final Contest Day of the 4-H Year and Awards Program. This year, Achievement Day will be held at H.L. Bourgeois on April 25, 2020.
