Did you miss Summer Camp? We did! Because we missed exploring our natural world during camp we decided to offer Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp Exploration Kits. The kits are specifically designed for youth ages 8 to 11, but can be adapted for use with all ages.
There will be one kit per month October through December, each containing 3-4 activities per kit. The kits will include instructions and all supplies needed to complete the activities to go with that month’s theme. The themes are: October – Ohio Trees, November – Native American History, and December – Hunting Fossils. Each kit will be $20 and must be ordered by the 25th of the month preceding. An invoice will be sent to the email address provided.
Adams County 4-H members can choose to participate in an additional fundraiser with the proceeds to be used for camp, Kids College, or other leadership opportunities through 4-H. Order forms for the Alabama Candle Company are now available for members or advisers to pick up at the Extension Office. The 4-H Advisory Committee will collect order forms and money on Monday, February 17. Candles are $12 each for a 9 oz jar and come in a wide array of scents.
This is a voluntary fundraiser and only members that choose to participate will have funds available to them. Our goal is to give 4-H members an opportunity to earn money they can use for 4-H camps and other 4-H educational trips/experiences. In previous years members have used this fundraiser to offset the fees for 4-H camp, Horse camp, Kids College, Leadership Washington Focus and more.
Beginner Camp at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp kicks off our summer camping season and is only 3 weeks away! “4-H Camp is Fun & Games” Beginner Camp is May 31 – June 3 for members just completing grades 3rd-5th. We have tons of fun planned for this camp as we take traditional board games to the outdoors and give them a Canter’s Cave twist. Invite a friend and come ready to play!
Members finishing grades 6th-8th are invited to attend “Survivor: Canter’s Cave” from June 6 – 9. Come see which Canter’s Cave myth becomes legend as tribes compete in activities throughout camp. Will your tribe win bragging rights? We will see.
Teen Camp will be June 14 – 17 and is always a great time. High ropes, cliff rappelling, and a canoe trip down Salt Creek are just a few of the adventures you’ll take at Teen Camp. Take a break from the summer rush and hang out with old friends at camp!
Finally, Cloverbud Overnighter for Cloverbuds and their parent or caregiver will be Friday, June 21 through Saturday, June 22. Parents and Cloverbuds will experience many of the fun camp activities that our older campers participate in like hiking, boating, archery, campfire and more! Join us for a taste of what Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp has to offer!
Registration and health forms and additional details can be found at Adams County 4-H Camps. Deadline for camp registration and payment is May 17 at 4 p.m. Hope to see YOU at camp this summer!
