Junior Camp Registrations are due to the Extension Office by May 15, 2019 at 4:30 p.m. This is not a postmark deadline.
We strongly encourage you to turn in registrations early because they are processed as they are received. High ropes and lamp all have a maximum number who can register. While we don’t wish to turn anyone away, there is a limit to what 4-H Camp Ohio facilities and our camp team can handle. Any registration received after we reach our maximum will be placed on a wait list and contacted if space becomes available.
Parents show their belief in the value of 4-H camping by sending thousands of young people to Ohio 4-H camps each year. The supportive environment at Ohio 4-H camps provides kids with opportunities to learn how to live, work and play through hands-on activities in the natural world.
Objectives of 4-H Camping
- To have educational, recreational, and social experiences in outdoor living away from home.
- To provide opportunities to meet and learn to get along with other people by living together and participating in a camping experience.
- To provide opportunities for youth to learn to take responsibility for their own decisions and actions.
- To offer new experiences for youth by exploring new interests, or by exposing them to new approaches to old interests, such as nature, aquatics, music, and other life skills that cannot be provided as effectively outside of camp.
- To teach youth about citizenship and the importance of being a responsible citizen.
- To discover and provide opportunities for developing leadership skills.
- To discover special talents among campers and teen leaders and provide opportunities for developing these talents.
- To learn to meet individual and group responsibilities.
- To enrich the ongoing 4-H club program and to involve youth in unit 4-H clubs.
- To have fun.
- To be inspired to practice better 4-H club membership.
