Six Fannin County 4-H members attended camp at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton, Georgia on July 7 – 11. Rock Eagle is the largest 4-H Center in the United States, and the theme for camp is Native American. The camp is divided into three tribes: Cherokee, Muskogee, and Shawnee, with friendly competition between the tribes during the week. Fannin County 4-H’ers were members of the Muskogee Tribe. Activities during the week included swimming, canoeing, nature hikes, visiting the Rock Eagle mound, games, crafts, archery, and classes on healthy living, lake ecology, forestry, and herpetology.
Amy Young and Anthony Venable served as teen leaders at camp. Eddie Ayers, Fannin County Extension Coordinator, served as a chaperone.
Summer 4-H camp is fun and is just one part of the Fannin County 4-H program. For more information about Fannin County 4-H, visit the 4-H office in the EMS Building at 205 Church Street in Blue Ridge or call 706-632-3061.
