4-H participants Russell/Scott County Jr. 4-H The 2013 Russell and Scott play the part of 'mad scientists' Counties Junior 4-H Camp was most successful! It was held July 22-26. This year, 154 Russell and Scott County campers, Teen Leaders and adult volunteers participated in the fun-filled educational week at the 4-H Center in Abingdon. 'DR Seuss' was the theme of this year's camp. Everyone enjoyed the green eggs for breakfast and the Seuss character dress up events! While at camp the youth enjoyed learning new skills in their many camp class choices. These classes included: Swim- ming class for beginners and advanced swimmers, Horse- manship, Archery, Crafts, Dance, Lego Robotics, Bugging Around, Fun Foods Snacks, Outdoor Cooking, Drama, Zip- line, Nature Science, Ropes Course, Basketball, Fishing and many others. A class called OOEY GOOEY which was taught by Russell County vol- unteers Tracy Dale and Jackie Hackney was a big hit with all the participants. The kids got to as they mixed the ingredients to create Slime, Ooze, Goop and edible Play ,Dough to name a few. Volunteers Cookie Ketron and Helen Matney shared their excellent cooking skills with the campers in the Fun Food Snacks Class. An outstanding group of Russell County teens taught and assisted with classes and served as Teen Counselors. Those teens were: Logan Kim, Tammy McCall, Madi Casteel, Wayne and Alysa Potts, Paula Kiser, Lance Campbell and Tiffany Helbert. We could not have conducted the camp week with- out the help and excellent leadership of these young men and women! They were very mature and trustworthy in the way they looked out for the campers, kept their schedules, taught and assisted with classes and worked with the adults and Permanent 4-H Center Staff. There was a special time set aside for an activity called '4-H Gives Back'. During this session Camp each of the camping groups worked to .complete a service project at the camp's fish pond. Their hard work will help to preserve the banks of the pond and make it accessible to all 4-H Camp visitors. Camp Tee Shirts have been ordered. Each 4-H Camper will be notified when they arrive!
