Summer is a busy time for Martin County 4-H, and this year has been filled with fun, learning, and exciting adventures for our youth. Our program strives to teach young people quality life skills that will help them become productive citizens in their community. Our journey to the Eastern 4-H Center, June 24 – June 29, brought many new experiences and a lot of good memories for two Martin County 4-H’ers.

Pierce Williams and Summer Davis, along with Martin County 4-H Agent, Susan Tyre traveled to Columbia, NC for state 4-H Camp last month. Our campers participated in kayaking, canoeing, archery, riflery, crafts, high ropes team building courses, low ropes team building courses, and many more fun activities. Youth are responsible for making their own beds each day and keeping their cabins clean. These healthy habits are taught to help youth learn the importance of taking care of themselves and their belongings. Each camp group was taught the importance of working together as a team and how these skills will help them later on in life.

Martin County 4-H is very proud of these 4-H’ers and all they accomplished while at camp. We would also like to thank the Martin County Juvenile Crime Prevention Council for helping with monetary camper scholarships that help off-set the cost for these youth to attend.
