As one of five 4-H Camps & Centers in North Carolina, the Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Center serves over 5,000 North Carolina youth each year, through both summer camps and school programs. Youth gain valuable knowledge and understanding through experiential education, or “hands-on learning”. This summer, ten Brunswick County youth traveled nearly five hours to the week long camp in Reidsville, North Carolina. Young people ate, slept, grew, and learned together, having a blast the entire time. They made new friends, shared stories and experiences while for many it was their first time away from home. Some of the numerous group activities included canoeing, archery, crafts, and rock wall climbing.
This year’s participants were: D’Myia G, Zach G, Cory H, Cary H, Cody H, Quincy R, Makayla R, Nick W, Kaitlyn W, and Josh W.
