I am in camp at Jackson's Mill taking First Aid during 4-H Leadership Conference. I will be an instructor and qualified to teach and issue certificates if I pass.
Having an enjoyable week and the food is wonderful. Activities are numerous but do not have much time to participate in recreation as this course is lengthy.

on a side note:
the 4 H's stand for
Head, Heart, Hands, and Health.
