They’re back a day early. They are tired and ready for a rest. They are the Red River 4-H students and their leaders who had been attending 4-H Camp Grant Walker.
The group arrived Thursday morning shortly before 10:00 am. They were met by waiting parents. Their summer at Camp Grant Walker was cut short a day by concerns over an approaching tropical storm. The kids all said they had a great time but were anxious to sleep in their own beds.
The local 4-H agent, Jacque Fontenot made sure everyone got their belongings loaded in their vehicles. She also had packets of photos for all.
The students all said they enjoyed camp and had a lot of fun. One boy said he was really tired and ready to get home.
The Journal talked to Jayden Scott, one of the youth counselors from Coushatta. Scott echoed the fun experience and added he learned a lot. Scott said he did stunts and acted out a little and added, “ learned kids really like it when big people lead and also learn how to lead better. Right now I’m headed for a nap!” Scott was wearing a 4-H t-shirt proclaiming, “living the dream.”
