Polk County 4-H members participate in 4-H Superhero Camp!


By Greg Paxton

Polk County Extension  

4-H Super Hero was the theme for the Polk County Jr. 4-H camp which was held June 18 through 21 at Camp McCroy in Polk County.

4-H members in grades 4-12 from across the county enjoyed a camp full of exciting activities.  The camp offered classes and activities with a superhero theme.  Campers enjoyed camp activities such as field events, sports, crafts, and project classes and just hanging out with friends.  

Some local "superheroes" were invited to camp to meet and talk with the campers.  VEC presented a program to the campers on electrical safety and showed some of their equipment they use to help keep get the lights back on after a summer thunderstorm.

Campers also enjoyed a field trip in which they met more local Superheroes. 

The campers traveled to the Polk County Sheriff’s Department and West Polk Fire & Rescue.  4-H campers learned how these local Superheroes spend their day fighting crime and helping residents in need.   After spending some time with the local superheroes, the campers enjoyed a trip to Super Fly in Chattanooga. 

To learn more about 4-H summer camp contact the UT Extension office in Benton.
