PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS

Teen Club

Russell County 4-H'ers attended 4-H Summer Camp on June 26th - 30th with campers from Tazewell County as well! Over 148 youth and adult volunteers from Russell County participated in the week-long event! While at 4-H Camp, youth learned life skills during classes like swimming, cooking, riflery, fishing, archery, crafts, and much more! Russell County youth attend 4-H Camp annually at Southwest Virginia 4-H Educational Center in Abingdon. Community support for Russell County 4-H Camping Program is strong as over 40 youth received scholarship money to attend the event.

Thank you to all of our sponsors! Also, special thanks to Fred and Carla Adkins for their continued support of the 4-H Program in establishing an Endowment Fund to provide camping scholarships to Russell County youth annually!
