Cloverleaf 4-H'ers Attend Camp
On June 10-14, 289 Bulloch County 4-H campers, volunteers and staff spent a fun-filled week at Rock Eagle 4-H Center for Cloverleaf Camp. This is one of the largest camping delegations in the entire state! Rising 6th and 7thgrade campers participated in classes such as healthy lifestyles, archery, herpetology, forestry, entomology and lake ecology. They also participated in water activities such as canoeing, sailing and swimming. Our older campers faced their fears on a high ropes course and learned about robotics and rocketry. In addition, campers learned more about Native American heritage, made crafts, participated in recreation games and practiced life skills in responsibility, cooperation, teamwork and comradery. We had an awesome week at camp, Go Cherokees! A special thank you goes out to all of the wonderful adult volunteers and teen leaders who were instrumental in the week’s success.
4-H'ers Participate in Summer Programs
Throughout the summer, rising 6th-7th grade 4-H’ers are participating in various educational summer programs. These 4-H’ers visited a local produce farm and learned about gardening and prepared some delicious recipes and jams using produce from the farm. They also traveled to Savannah for a trolley ride through historic downtown and visited the set of WTOC to witness a news broadcast. Later in the summer these 4-H’ers will participate in music and water workshops as well.
