"Dees it justify the time and money spent?" To get an answer, let's look at some of the opportunities the Illinois 4-H camping pro gram: 1. Camping is important for youngsters because it gives tliota a chance lor physical development. For example, in the past 20 years of the Illinois camping program, more than 90 per cent of the nonswimmcrs have learned to swim in the five days they attended camp. 2. Boys and girls have a chance to discover special talents, to practice leadership and to learn cooperative play in social recreation. 3. Special - interest groups in crafts, nature study, group ac- stimuiate mental' development. 4. Meditation and rest periods, grace songs before meals, reverence for national emblems, nature sounds, music and the devotional opportunities of the evensong encourage spiritual development.

Boys and girls living in the same camp get the advantages of community living. Each cabin family is either all boys or all girls and is located in a boy neighborhood or a girl neighborhood. Rules and regulations in each neighborhood require cooperative living and understanding of family and neighborhood government. Operating and maintaining the sanitary facilities and cabins is one responsibility of the neighborhoods. Eoth boy and girl neighborhoods are jointly responsible for operation of the camping community. Community facilities include the dining hall, health center, waterfront, commissary, play fields, nature trails, craft shop and camp equipment.
