Seventy-one campers and 17 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 June 29-July 2. 

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 our adult leaders: Mark Thurman, Gerald DeVary, Clint Pearman, Melanie Whitlock, Regina Childress, Mary Beth Boley and Cassie Allen. Also, thanks to the following teen leaders: Jason Wheeler, Ryan Durbin, Michael Huff, Lyndsay Whitlock, Valerie Whitlock, Emily Kessinger, Nicole Burt and Teen Leaders in Training Amber Slayton and Bailey Brown. 

Thirteen campers were able to attend camp due to financial assistance from donors. A special thanks goes to our camp scholarship donors: Charlene Wells, Farm Bureau Insurance – Price Smith, James and Kay Bondurant, South Fork Homemakers, Crosstown Homemakers, Community Action and the Youth Service Center. 

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.
