NEW HANOVER and PENDER COUNTIES, NC (WECT) – A group of eight young locals got the chance to participate in 4-H camp this summer, according to a news release.
The children and teens spent time at the Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Center in Reidsville, which is one of five 4-H camps and centers in NC. There, they made friends, learned and got to participate in activities like canoeing, archery, horseback riding and more.
Wilmington residents Dominic Iannucci, 12, and Samantha Iannucci, 14, were part of the Adventurer Program. Along with the traditional program, they learned about outdoor living skills, GPS navigation, team challenges, and high ropes.
14-year-old Gage Green of Holly Ridge and 14-year-old Brianna Militello, of Wilmington, were part of the Trekker Program, which allows participants to go offsite camping, river canoeing and rock climbing. They were also a part of the Cloverbud Day Camps.
Joshua McGhee of Castle Hayne and Tyne Wallace of Carolina Beach, both 9, were traditional camp participants.
Leaders in training were Wilmington residents Helena Boldizer, 15, and Madison Godfrey, 16.
