Henderson County 4-H Will Be Going to Camp June 28 – July 3

— Written By

Henderson County 4-H will be going to the Betsy Jeff Penn 4-H Center, in Reidsville, NC, June 28 – July 3. At camp, young people develop skills in responsibility, teamwork, and independence, learn about the environment, and make new friends. Traditional campers, ages 9–12, enjoy swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, archery, rock climbing, and more. Cabin groups take turns serving as waiters at meals and compete for awards for cleanest cabins. Adventurers, ages 13-14, swim, canoe, climb the rock wall and high ropes, learn compass skills, cook a meal outside, and camp out by the lake one night. Trekkers, ages 13-14, canoe down the Dan River, camp out, cook a meal outside one night, and climb Pilot Mountain. Leaders in Training, ages 15-17, help with young campers all week and enjoy their own special time on high ropes.

NC 4-H is accepting applications for first-time campers from low-income families or underserved audiences. Contact Denise_Sherrill@ncsu.edu for more information. These applications are due March 2.
