This Obion County 4-H Camp is scheduled for July 6-9 at the Ridley 4-H Center in Columbia.
Campers will rally with team members to win team challenges and unleash talents and skills by acquiring knowledge and skills to help them get where they want to be.
Campers may enjoy an Olympic-sized, crystal-clear pool with a 120-foot, figure-8 water slide; a lighted sports complex with a softball field; and volleyball and basketball courts.
Other facilities include a wildlife center, covered rifle range, airbrush center, a creek for aquatic exploration, modern archery range with 3-D targets, low ropes course and an 18-hole miniature golf course. An outdoor theater is the backdrop for campfires and vespers. A canteen offers refreshing snack items. Campers will also discover the value of friendship while meeting campers and leaders who may become lifelong friends.
Any children completing grades seven through eight this year are eligible to attend. It makes no difference if the child attends city or county schools or is home-schooled.
Cost of camp is $215. This fee includes the costs for transportation, lodging and meals. Each child will also receive a camp T-shirt. Additional money will be needed for snacks, crafts and souvenirs.
