Earlier this summer, eight 5th-6th grade students and one teen leader from Troup County attended 4H Summer Camp at Camp Wahsega. 4Hers spent the week learning about the forests and streams and the animals that live there.
They were also given the opportunity to practice archery, scale the climbing wall, fly on the Flying Squirrel, go down the zip line, swim in the pond and falls, and learn about wilderness survival. In the evenings, the students were involved in a talent show, costume contest, campfire skits and s’mores.There were group dinner cookouts and a day of water games with a giant slip and slide.
Both the boys and girls cabins won the coveted Clean Cabin Clover award which is given out daily to the cleanest cabin. They were also assigned service projects including KP (kitchen patrol) cleaning the rec hall and bath houses. It was a busy week, but our students had a great time and look forward to going back!
