The Clover Games were a success

RICHMOND — Almost 300 youth and volunteers from Madison County attended the 2014 Madison County 4-H Camp last week, June 30 through July 3. The campers who attended had a great time.

On Monday night, there was a carnival, complete with inflatables, cotton candy and snow cones.

Tuesday and Wednesday night, the campers had the opportunity to compete in the “Clover Games,” patterned after the popular book and movie, “The Hunger Games,” which also served as our camp theme this year.

In addition, the campers also had the opportunity to take four different classes throughout the week.

Classes available to choose from included archery, riflery, woodworking, loom band class, fabric art and more!

The senior campers (age 14) had the unique opportunity to participate in the high-ropes class and teen-only swimming!

We could not have had a successful year without our numerous volunteers. This year we had 42 adult counselors and 17 teen counselors. Thanks again to our many numerous donors who allowed over 40 campers to attend on scholarship.

Plans already are underway for the 2015 summer camp program. To find out more about how to volunteer, be a camper or participate in any of our other 4-H programs, call the Madison County Extension Office at 623-4072.

Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
