INDIANA — Jasper County 4-H members headed to 4-H camp in early June down at Shakamak State Park. The theme of the camp this year was Game On! and incorporated various popular games and board games. The campers were able to participate in eight different classes that included Animal Tracking, Boating, Fishing, Crafts, Kitchen Science, and more. Campers were also able to play fun team building and group recreation games that encouraged a lot of laughter and fun. We were able to take a bus of 27 campers and 5 counselors and we hope to continue the tradition of 4-H Camp in 2022.
