Summer Camp for 4-H members is out of this world

Newton County 4-Hers at “Mission Space” camp were (back row, from left to right) Preston Farmer; Greg Vangunda; Jacob Boeglin; Jeremy Elliott-Engel, 4-H youth development specialist, (front row, from left to right) Joshua Raben, Collin Farley, Trey Larson, and Kendall Platner.

Six Barry County 4-H youth members and 25 from Newton County attended the Southwest Missouri 4-H Summer Camp at Roaring River State Park this June. The camp theme was “Mission Space” and it was funded by a NASA grant.

Activities emphasized fun but covered topics as diverse as physics, chemistry, engineering and food. Attending 4-H members built rockets out of plastic bottles and pencils and created lunar gear. At the Clover Kids Camp, younger members made jet packs out of two-liter bottles and old seat belts.

Teen counselors are used to help deliver the programs. As a counselor, teens are asked to take on responsibility for presenting workshops, helping support campers have fun and ensuring the safety of their groups.
