With more than 100 campers in attendance, the annual 4-H County Weekend Camp at Camp Woodlee was a success in large part to an extraordinary number of volunteers. Simply put, without them, this weekend getaway for area youth wouldn’t be possible.
The overnight stay is more than just a day away from home, it’s an opportunity to get back to nature, to make lasting memories and have a little fun while doing so.
It’s also a special weekend for many of the Honor Club members as well.
“We have a special ceremony with a bonfire on Saturday night,” said 4-H agent Brenda Hannah. “The old Honor Club members and agents initiated 19 new members for the 4-H Honor Club. They received a certificate and an Honor Club pin at the ceremony.
“Our Honor Club members are involved in many community service projects throughout the year. We also had the retirement of an American Flag. Each person in attendance had a part in the retirement.”
This marked Moore County’s 57th year to attend Camp Woodlee.
