Local 4-H officials say a fun-filled week will soon arrive for students in the fourth through sixth grades, as Wilson County students attend Summer 4-H Camp from June 27 through July 1.
The camp offers an assortment of activities for youth, including a team-building challenge course, fishing pond, wildlife walks, leather crafts, canoeing and kayaking, basketball, volleyball, woodshop activities, tie-dye and airbrushed T-shirts, archery and rifle range and swimming with a slide and diving board. Special educational activities will include a technology program that will allow campers to learn about science and engineering.
Each day, there will be special events such as the "Land Olympics," a talent show and a campfire complete with stories and s'mores. Campers will enjoy competitions like the rifle competition, the archery competition, derby car race, fishing tournament, basketball and more.
