13781904_834126496723285_3270309874382701320_nIn July, Russell and Barbour County 4-H hosted a full day camp to introduce the kayaking program.  We had 10 youth participate from both counties.  Partnering with the Alabama Game and Fish Department, we started the day with a 2-hour paddle trip from the Lake Eufaula Campground.  We came back to a yummy grilled hamburger lunch and healthy dessert and healthy drinks.  We had some time after lunch to swim in the campground pool before getting a fishing lesson from our friends at Game & Fish and then heading over to one of the campground’s stocked ponds for some fishing fun.  We had a great time and we can’t wait for next summer’s club!
