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 Summer Camp is open to 4th-6th graders. Campers choose from one of six activity tracks to participate in during their week at camp. Campers also have recreational time to swim, create handcrafted items, archery, canoeing and kayaking, sand volleyball, kickball, board games, tubing and much more! Our evening programs are fun and filled with skits, talent shows, vespers, dances and special guest speakers. This year St. Helena had 35 youth to participate in camp and in several different tracks. Campers were able to participate in tracks of their choice such as; Get Ready, get SET - Science, Engineering & Technology, Dramatic Arts, Explore Louisiana: Wetlands, Wildlife and YOU!, Fit 4 the Future: Get Ready, Get Set, Go!Hunter’s Safety Certification.
