The 4-Hers left by bus on Monday morning. First on the agenda was a Muskogee tribal meeting. The more than 750 4-Hers attending camp during the week were segmented into three tribes Cherokee, Shawnee and Muskogee. After that, the 4-Hers went to their cabins, where they met their milk cottage counselors for a time of recreation. Then they had night recreation and cottage meetings that were conducted every night.
The 4-Hers were able to participate in many workshops including crafts, native lore, nature hikes, Healths Our Pledge (HOP!), conservation, natural history, raptors, herpetology, canoeing, swimming, high ropes, a climbing wall, entomology, tennis, forestry, archery, lake ecology, sailing and many more.
