On June 28, the Country Hearts 4-H Club hosted a day camp at the Johnson County Fairgrounds. The theme was “Get Active, America!” to promote healthy activities. More than 20 campers and counselors met for a day of learning and fun.
Corrin Weaver led the club was led in some great games that promoted team building and active fun. Weaver has been trained as a physical education teacher. The fun games were ones that kids ages 5-18 could all do together.
Campers also made patriotic decorations. The decorations were handed out to decorate the rooms of residents of the Villa St. Francis nursing home right before the Fourth of July.
The water balloon toss was a highlight of the day camp. Everyone had a lot of fun on this great day.
