More Information about MXC:


Older youth age 14 to 18 who plan to serve as camp counselors are invited to participate in Making eXtreme Counselors (MXC)–an interactive and quick-paced training that offers innovative camp ideas to new and veteran camp counselors. MXC participants will leave with skills that will enable them to assist in their county’s camp program planning and delivery, and prepare them to deliver a great camp program to their campers.


MXC is a national award-winning workshop that will be useful for all potential camp counselors. Don’t miss your chance to participate—the event will be offered once in 2019, during the weekend of February 23-24. MXC will be held at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the campus of The Ohio State University. Counselors will earn camp counselor training hours while attending this event (number of hours is determined by county). Participants will be able to share and gain ideas with teens from other counties all across the state. County Extension Professionals and Camp Directors are NOT required to attend with their counselors.
