2021 4-H Camp Update

We are excited to announce that Ohio 4-H has approved overnight camping opportunities for 2021! We have been diligently working through what we will be able to do at camp and what camp will look like this year. There is still a lot of planning and many details to work out but we are so very much looking forward to being back at 4-H Camp Ohio this year!

4-H Summer Camp (overnight residential camp) will be held during the updated dates of June 18-20th and Cloverbud Day Camp will still be held on Saturday, June 19th. Registration materials are not quite ready yet. We hope to have that information out to you early next week. Registration information will come to you by email and will be completed online. NEW this year, you will have the option to pay by credit/debit card through an online payment portal! The registration deadline will be Friday, May 28th for both Summer Camp and Cloverbud Day Camp or until the camps fill. PLEASE NOTE: Camp will be held at a reduced capacity for 2021. Depending on the interest in these camps, registrations may fill before the deadline. Should camp fill before you register, you have the option to be added to a wait list in case of cancellations.

Thanks to the continued support of several sponsors, camp scholarships will still be available for Licking County 4-H members who have a financial need.
