4-Hers have 'Superhero Summer'

-A A +A

As we have reached the halfway mark for the year 2012 and the first day of school just around the corner, several 4-Hers will reflect on the fun they had this year during their stay at Dawson Springs 4-H Summer Camp from June 5 through 8. With the theme Super Hero Summer  Hardin County youth joined others from Breckinridge, Caldwell, Lyon and Trigg counties meeting new friends in addition to sallying down the alley. Crafts, nature, fishing, canoeing, archery and shooting sports were also among the long list of activities found at 4-H summer camp. In addition to the traditional camping activities several campers learned basic horsemanship thanks to the students at Murray State University Equine division.


Each year 4-H summer camp captures a moment in time bringing smiles to both youth and adults. This year probably will go down as one of the coolest and most enjoyable camps we ever have had. I am especially grateful to the following volunteers who took time out of their schedule to attend and help to make sure that campers were safe and had a great time: adults, Stephanie Meredith, Jennifer Wiseman, Tracy Eck, MelissaAllender, Sue Ellen Langley, Wendy Blan, Sean Clark, James England and John Wiseman; and teens, Ben Wiseman, Kate Dennis, Laetitia Langley, Leslie Langley, Lydia Wiseman, Ashleigh Stickfort and Alison Ray.

A total of 89 youth, adult and teen volunteers were in attendance and it would not have been possible without the many contributions from the following groups and individuals: Elizabethtown Lions Club,Hardin County Soil Conservation, Lou Ann Carman and the following Extension Homemaker Clubs: HardinCounty, Glendale, Radcliff, Rineyville andDixie.  Thank you for making a difference and a lifetime of memories for so many.
