Warmer weather and longer days mean we're coming clos- er to the biggest program of the year for 4-H - camping season ! For those that don't know, 4-H is a youth development pro- gram offered around the coun- try and around the world. In our backyard, the program is mn through WVU Extension Service and serves youth be- tween the ages of 9 and 21. 4-H members are able to participate in projects and ac- tivities throughout the year to expand their knowledge on everything from photogra- phy to cooking to raising live- stock. However, camping is the week out of the year many of our members look forward to the most. 4-H camping is a long-stand- ing tradition in West Virginia, as our state was the first in the country to start the 4-H camp- ing program over 100 years ago. For 90 years, youth from across the Eastern Panhandle have been coming to camp. Over time, our local camp- ing program evolved into one that is also unique to the rest of the state. The tri-county area has three weeks of camp that serve various age groups and brings together members from Berkeley, Morgan and Jefferson counties all at once to celebrate tradition, make new friends, and learn team building, responsibility and independence. But don't think you need to be a 4-H member in order to attend camp! The camping program is open to youth from the tri-county area regardless a child is at least 11 and is of their membership in 4-H. going into the sixth grade, Space is still available at they're welcome to attend In- two of the three weeks of termed|ate Camp. tri-county 4-H camp.

Over this time, Kennedy re-invented his beliefs on the role and duty of the government. He became the champion of the aver- age man and the downtrodden, he worked toward expanding economic opportunity, he moved away from hardline assaults on crime and corruption to emphasizing how these destroyed the victims.
