Betsy Jeff Penn 4-H Camp 2010

Fifteen Brunswick County 4-H youth attended camp at Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Center July 11th-16th in Reidsville, North Carolina.  The week began with a cookout on Sunday afternoon, and culminated with fond farewells and hugs on Friday morning.  Packed with activities, new friends and new opportunities, the week seemed to go by way too fast.

Campers had the opportunity to be involved in several activities such as canoeing, wall climbing, horseback riding, crafts, swimming, and archery, just to name a few.  Traditional campers from Brunswick County included Swain Curtain, Eliza Douglass, Aaron Dreyer, Hailey Dreyer, Antonio Grissett, Declan Hall, Maggie Hopper, Lauren Johnson, Teddy Johnson, Makayla Randolph, Chandler (CJ) Schaffler, and Joshua Woodard.

Quincy Randolph participated in the Outdoor Adventure program.  Adventurers camped outdoors for two nights on the camp grounds.  They learned the importance of trust and communication through team building and high ropes course activities.  Adventurers also developed canoeing skills and learned global positioning skills during Geocaching adventures.

Adventures in team building!

Matthew Hampton and Zachary Golliday participated in the Trekker program.  Trekkers spent the first half of the week learning canoeing and rock climbing skills.  During the last half of the week, Trekkers traveled offsite to canoe down the Mayo River, rock climb  and camp at Pilot Mountain State Park.

Leslie Kammer, 4-H Program Assistant, attended the camp with the Brunswick County youth. If you are interested in Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Camp, contact Leslie Kammer at 910-253-2610 for  information about attending next year.
