Camping is one of the most valuable experiences a child can have. It’s a learning experience that helps boys and girls appreciate the outdoors, live together as a group, get along with others and appreciate people with different interests and backgrounds.
4-H Camp is held at the LSU AgCenter’s Grant Walker 4-H Educational Center, an 80-acre campsite near Pollock, La., on Highway 8 about 15 miles northeast of Alexandria, La.
The camp week consists of four days, beginning on Monday afternoon when the campers arrive at camp and ending on Friday morning after breakfast. 4-H agents, volunteer leaders and teen counselors from each parish attend camp and stay in the cabins with the campers.
Campers can choose from several different educational tracks to participate in, such as Science, Engineering and Technology; Outdoor Adventures; Hunter Safety Certification; Food and Fitness; The Artist Within; and more.
