Green Blur of Activity!

 It’s been a blur of 4-H activities the past week or so which seemed to create a green blur for many – especially me! Here’s a quick rundown of past and future opportunities!

 4-H Adventure Camp

Cuming, Colfax and Burt Count Extension worked together to put on the annual 4-H Adventure Camp which was held Friday, June 7 in West Point. Fifty-eight 8-11 year old campers attended with 19 of them from Burt County. They spent the day rotating through educational and fun activities including making pinecone flowers, nutritious snacks, canoeing and water relays.
