Local Teens Attend 4-H Retreat

Somerset County 4-H members recently participated in the Central Region 4-H Teen Retreat held at Camp Krislund Conference Center near Lamar, PA. The theme for this year’s retreat was “4-H Centennial Circus.” The goal of the weekend was to provide a fun, peer centered environment to motivate and educate teens and to improve their feelings of capability, increase their level of knowledge and build their willingness to assume and fulfill leadership roles back in their community.
    In addition to the workshops, the retreat participants enjoyed a motivational speaker, team building exercises and recreation. The Central Region Teen Retreat included 55 4-H teens from Bedford, Blair, Cambria, Centre, Clearfield, Clinton, Elk, Jefferson, Juniata, McKean, Potter and Somerset Counties. The 4-H members would like to thank the 4-H Development Fund, Inc. and PBS Coals Inc. for sponsoring the youth who participated in 4-H Regional Teen Retreat.
