County sends 93 campers, 14 leaders to Lake Cumberland

By Misty Wilmoth

Ninety-three campers and 14 teen and adult leaders spent four days at Lake Cumberland enjoying swimming, boating, fishing, archery, riflery, arts and crafts, recreation, high ropes, low ropes and outdoor cooking. 


4-H Camp would not be possible without all the help from the adult and teen leaders who volunteer their time for the week. A special thanks to adult leaders Gerald DeVary, Todd Morris, Clint Pearman, Jason Wheeler, Rebecca Eads, Sheila Arnette, Mary Beth Boley and Cassie Allen. Also, thanks to the following teen leaders:  Ryan Durbin, Chance Johnson, Zach Thurman, Danielle Lee, Amber Slayton and Emily Kessinger.

Camp was June 29-July 2.

Seventeen campers were able to attend camp due to financial assistance from donors. A special thanks goes to our camp scholarship donors: Charlene Wells, Ernie and Genevieve Roso, Farm Bureau Insurance, James and Kay Bondurant, South Fork Homemakers, Crosstown Homemakers, Community Action and Martin Meadow Farms.

4-Hers, if you missed out on the fun at 4-H Camp this summer, plan now to attend next year. The 4-H Camp dates will be set this fall. Camper applications are accepted beginning in March and teen leader applications are usually due by April 15.
