Final Quality Assurance and Horse Safety & Ethics Training!

The final Licking County Quality Assurance Training and Horse Safety & Ethics Program will be held on Thursday, May 23, 2019 at Licking Valley High School. The program will begin at 6:30pm. If you have not completed your Quality Assurance Training Requirement, this will be your last option to do so in Licking County. There are additional options outside of Licking County that meet the June 1st deadline. If you are not able to come to the May 23rd Quality Assurance, please call our office at 740-670-5315 for out of county options.

Guidelines and a listing of the projects that require completion of a Quality Assurance Training can be found here.

Members taking a horse project for the first year must attend a Horse Safety & Ethics program to be eligible to show. The May 23rd Horse Safety & Ethics program listed above is the final option that meets those requirements for 2019.

If your child is no longer taking a livestock or horse project, please email Adrienne at anderson.1410@osu.edu to have the project(s) removed from the member’s enrollment.

If you need to have your picture taken for the Hartford Fair Photo IDs, representatives from the fair will be taking photos from 5:00-6:30pm. They will be starting earlier than normal in order to ensure they are able to get everyone’s picture taken before the program starts. Please come early enough to get your picture taken before the program starts.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT NO EXCEPTIONS WILL BE MADE TO THOSE WHO DON’T COMPLETE THE QUALITY ASSURANCE REQUIREMENTS BY JUNE 1 EACH YEAR.

REMINDER: Licking County 4-H Summer Camp Registrations Due!

Licking County’s 4-H Summer Camp will be held June 13-17, 2019 at 4-H Camp Ohio.

NEW THIS YEAR: We will be using 4hOnline to register members for 4-H Summer Camp. Families will need to log into www.4honline.com just as they did for enrollment. The registration event portal will open on Monday, April 15, 2019. Please review the following information before you register your youth:

  • Super Session Information: This document includes super session descriptions and a form that youth can fill out to help you register them for their super sessions.
  • Instructions on how to register a youth for camp: Please read through these instructions thoroughly before you register your children for camp. Should you need help with registration, please contact Adrienne at anderson.1410@osu.edu for assistance.

Registrations are due by May 17, 2019. Late registrations will be accepted if there is still room from May 18-24, 2019 with an additional fee. We have filled camp over the last two years and have had a wait list. Please register your child early to ensure them a spot.

4-H Summer Camp is also open to non-Licking County 4-H members. Since these participants do not have access to 4hOnline, they will need to complete the paper registration found here and turn it into the Licking County Extension Office with payment. We will register them within the system as we receive their registrations.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • Super Sessions have a limit to the number of youth that can attend and fill on a first come, first served basis. Once a session is full, the system will no longer allow you to select it. You will need to make a different selection for that session. It will be helpful to you to have your child fill out the paper session form by ranking their choices. Participants may not take the same session multiple times. For example, a member cannot take Creeking/Stream Study for more than one session.
  • Pay attention to sessions that are listed as double or triple. If you select a double or triple session, you will need to select the appropriate option from the second/third session for that day that reflect the fact that the participant will be in a double or triple session. For example, if you select 114 Zip Line & Climbing Wall, you would not select a 200 or 300 session. You would select “Participating in a session continued from 9:15 (High Ropes, Pistol, Zip Line) for both the 200 and 300 sessions. Look at the sample in the instructions to help you with this.
  • Some session have age restrictions. Please do not sign up for a session if your child does not meet the age requirements.
  • The 4hOnline system cannot accept online payments. You will need to print the final confirmation page and submit it to the extension office with your payment WITHIN ONE WEEK of submitting your registration in order for us to hold your spot. If payment is not received within one week, you will forfeit your child’s spot to another camper.
  • Camp scholarships are available to Licking County 4-H Members. The application is due with your registration confirmation page to the Licking County Extension Office by 4:30pm on May 17, 2019. NO LATE APPLICATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED. The application can be found here.
  • Children of 2019 Licking County Farm Bureau members can take advantage of a $50 discount off their camp fee. You must have a valid, 2019 membership and must supply that membership number in the registration. This discount is only valid for the children of active members. It cannot be another family member’s membership (i.e. grandparent, aunt/uncle, friend, etc.). The system does not automatically remove the amount from the final camp cost. Please make note on your confirmation page and write your check for the appropriate amount ($120 for those registered by the deadline).

The cost of camp was set to be $200 per member. Thanks to the generous support of the Granville Kiwanis and the Licking County Farm Bureau and the sponsors of the Farmer’s Share Breakfast, we received enough support to take $30 off every camp registration and $20 off every counselor’s fee. We are overwhelmed with the wonderful support and are so excited to be able to offer camp at a discounted rate this year!

Should you have questions about the Camp Scholarship Application or other questions about camp, please contact Lisa at mccutcheon.46@osu.edu.
