Creekside Classroom Construction

The Licking County 4-H Committee, with support from several groups and local businesses, is building a shelter house style structure at 4-H Camp Ohio next to the walk bridge on the boy’s side of camp. This new structure will be the Creekside Classroom and will offer additional learning space during our creeking sessions and other activities at camp. This is something that we have wanted to see happen for many years and are excited it is finally coming to fruition! We will need help with assembling the structure on Saturday, October 15th. More details will be come once they’ve been finalized, but please save the date in your calendar if that is something you think you can help with. Please note: we are asking for ADULT volunteers who are physically able to help build the structure. While we love having youth help us with a variety of activities, this activity needs those with some skills with tools and construction.

We’ll also have more information about those donors and businesses who helped make this project possible once it is completed.

HEALTHU

Are you a 4-H’er interested in health? Do you see yourself potentially working in health one day? Nutritionist? Therapist? Nurse? Athletic Trainer? Geneticist?

What: Health University (HealthU) is a weekend camp in October focused on Healthy Living for high schoolers in Ohio 4-H. Join us at 4-H Camp Ohio for a weekend as we explore four of the 9 Dimensions of Wellness and explore health-related careers. We will be exploring the following four tracks of wellness:

  • Physical wellness allows a person to engage in activities of daily living without experiencing undue fatigue or exhaustion. The physical dimension of wellness is supported through health behaviors, which include exercise, eating a healthy diet, limiting alcohol intake, not smoking, and getting adequate sleep each night.
  • Emotional wellness involves recognizing, accepting, and expressing feelings. Adequate rest is required for wellness in this dimension. If an individual’s mental function is hindered by stress and lack of sleep, they may struggle with accurately assessing a situation which then triggers negative emotional responses and disrupts emotional wellness.
  • Social wellness requires the ability to trust and respect other people and leads to the creation of supportive partnerships and friendships. Being socially well allows one to develop and maintain intimacy, and to have empathy and respect for others.
  • Creative wellness allows a person to appreciate and/or participate in a diverse range of arts or cultural experiences, and to value and cherish the surrounding world. Freely expressing thoughts and emotions through dance, song, drawing, painting, or writing are some of the ways to engage in creative wellness.

Who: Any current 4-H’ers in grades 9 thru 12.
