LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – Youths ages 11 to 17 who have lost family members during military
service will be part of a special “Hearts of Our Heroes Camp” Saturday and Sunday
presented by Arkansas 4-H and Survivor Outreach Services, an agency of the U.S. Army.
The activities will be held at the C.A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center in Ferndale, 10
miles west of Little Rock.
The youths are from across the state, said Creenna Bocksnick, 4-H camping coordinator.
They were selected in coordination with Survivor Outreach Services. Youths selected
for the program are not restricted to those who lost relatives to battle casualties
but also includes those who may have lost a close relative in other ways while on
The Sunday sessions will include active duty military personnel who will participate
in the activities with the youths throughout the day. “They are there as mentors to
give back to the kids their connection with the military if they've lost a family
member,” Bocksnick said.
The weekend’s activities include hiking, reptile care, astronomy instruction, archery,
canoeing and bottle rocketry.
Bocksnick said 4-H and the military have previously coordinated camps to provide activities
for children from families of active duty military personnel.
Survivor Outreach Services is the official Army program designed to provide long-term
support to surviving families of fallen soldiers,
