The 2011 CSC 4-H Camp Brule is in the books and Northumberland County had 31 representatives attend the five-day camp. These 31 attendees were among nearly 250 campers, counselors, volunteers and staff that attended. "Hollywood in the Hills" was the theme for this year's camp and, overall, a great time was had by all. Overall, the group was treated to a great week of fun, friendship and, of course, a bit of learning, too!
The campers from Northumberland County were: Alley Bassett, Lizzy Bassett (Camper-At-Training), Brian Birster, David Brittingham, Christina Ferdock, Sara Nicola, Victoria Nicola, Hailey Nungesser, Harry Nungesser (Camper-At-Training), Melissa Owens, Carmine Picarelli, Gianna Picarelli, Caleb Ross, Haley Ross, Heidi Ross, Madison Shipe, Seth Shultz, Caleb Stassel, Lydia Stassel, Kaitlyn Trent, Ashley Wilga, and Justin Wilga. These campers represent 4-H members from the Backwoodsmen, Saddle Starz, Mount Carmel Galloping Tornadoes and the Coal Township Miners 4-H Clubs.
Kate Bassett, a Backwoodsmen 4-H member, served as one of three "Key Counselors" at Camp. Lead Counselors included Sarah Bassett, Elizabeth Pope, Zach Raker, and Valerie Rarig of the Backwoodsmen; Ashley Persing of the Saddle Starz 4-H Club; and Tara Reed of the Coal Township Miners/Wolfpack 4-H Club.
