4-H agent Janeen Tramble said the camp, located in Dawson Springs, is open to anyone between nine and 14. Trigg County campers will be camping from June 30 to July 3. She said they usually take about 60 campers, which is usually evenly divided between girls and boys. She said anyone interested should hurry because, as of last week, they already had close to 40 campers already registered. She said the registration deadline is early because Trigg County 4-H shares the camp five other counties. Kids can request to room with a friend and they will usually get the cabin they want. They might also make some new friends, since the cabins will be shared with Lyon County children.
Tramble said the camp always proves to be a lot of fun for the children who participate. They can sign up for four classes out of a list that includes more than 25. The list of classes includes canoeing, rifling, fishing, swimming, outdoor cooking and many more.
The time spent at camp isn’t rigidly structured, though. There is free swim time in the afternoons and free recreation opportunities at other times as well, Tramble said. Since the camping will end the night before Independence Day, there will be a fireworks display on the last night. On another night the featured activity will be carnival games.
