Rylan Newhouse, Sidney Donnelly, and Kane Donnelly attended a week of the Governor's Youth Opportunity and Adventure Camp at Camp Horseshoe.

PARSONS, W.Va. - Three Mineral County children were able to attend the Governor’s Youth Opportunity and Adventure Camps at Horseshoe Leadership Center.

    Three week-long camp sessions keep the 7 – 12 year old boys and girls busy and active in purposeful activities from sunrise to bedtime.  A wide variety of activities keep the children engaged including dance/drama, music, reading, languages, and science along with crafts, bracelets, hiking, swimming, and snorkeling in crystal-clear Horseshoe Run.

    AmeriCorps VISTA volunteers served as cabin counselors, who attested that campers come away from summer with new games to play and new skills to take into their lives back home today and in their adult lives.
