New 4H club offers free kayaking trip


Staff Report



The Logan County Adventure Club is the area’s newest 4H Club for Logan Countians between the ages of 13 and 18.

Although Logan County has had a consistent camping program, clubs have not existed for some time.

“When people think of 4H, they often think of farming or crafts, but the Logan County Adventure Club is a perfect example of how a 4H Club can be created to fit the wants and needs of today’s youth,” Jamie Dempsey Butcher, new WVU Extension Agent of 4H Youth Development in Logan County.“The Logan County Adventure Club is a county-wide club for teens and two elementary schools will be starting Jr. adventure clubs for children 8 and older, so we are very much looking forward to that.”

The new clubs will be getting off the ground in November – starting with monthly meetings.

However, the Adventure Club for teens will have a Club Kick-Off event on October 15th.

“Any Logan County teen between 13 and 18 can meet at Four Season’s Country Store for a Free two-hour Kayaking trip down the Guyandotte River, followed by a barbeque cookout,” Butcher said. “There is no obligation to join the adventure club, but we wanted to offer this event to give teens a taste of what the adventure club will be doing throughout the year and the opportunity to get club information.”

To participate in this free event, you must first call the WVU Extension Office to reserve your kayak at 304-792-8690. “We are limited to 25 kayaks, so it is important to call and reserve your spot,” Butcher explained.

The Adventure Club is also on facebook at facebook.com/LC4HAdventure.
