Attending summer camp at Camp Grant Walker is the highlight for so many Louisiana 4-H youth, and adults. Unfortunately, due to the damage caused by two hurricanes in the fall of 2020, Camp Grant Walker is not well enough to welcome campers back in the summer of 2021. However, camp must go on in some way, so thanks to the Louisiana 4-H Program, Camp Grant Walker is leaving Pollock, Louisiana and coming to Assumption Parish on June 9, 2021! Yes, you read that correct...Terrebonne Parish 4-H will join Assumption Parish 4-H for this one-day camp.
4-H Day Camp is open to all 4th-6th grade 4-H’ers. The cost of camp is $30.00 which includes snacks, lunch, and a t-shirt.
Applications can be completed on line by clicking the following link https://bit.ly/CGW4Hcamp21 or email Mrs. Cherie @firstname.lastname@example.org for a hard copy of the application. Only one application is needed (either online or hard copy).
