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.

REMINDER: 2019 Mini Camp Registrations Due!

Friday, April 26th is the deadline to register for Licking County 4-H Mini Camp. Mini Camp will be held May 10-11 at 4-H Camp Ohio. This is an ideal camp for young campers who are in their last year of Cloverbuds or in their first or second year as a project member. This one night camp gives your youth a “taste” of the camping experience without the commitment of a five day camp. We have found that youth who are apprehensive about attending camp and come to mini camp, enjoy summer camp more and are less likely to feel homesick because they are already familiar with the facilities, rules and routines. Registration information can be found here.

2019 Buckeye Vet Camp

The Ohio State University College of Veterinary Medicine is offering a summer residential camp for current high school freshmen, sophomores and juniors. This is a five day residential camp that gives participants an opportunity to learn more about veterinary school and the profession. The program takes place in a university environment and includes both social and educational activities.

During Buckeye Vet Prep Camp attendees will:

  • Work side by side with current veterinary students as counselors and explore the world of veterinary medicine.
  • Take a behind the scenes tour of the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium.
  • Learn about the diverse career options in veterinary medicine.
  • Participate in mock classes,  labs and community service activities

All students will be considered, but priority will be given to students who are considered traditionally underrepresented in veterinary medicine, which can include males and individuals from socioeconomic and or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds. We accept both in state and out of state students.

The cost to attend the camp is $600 and includes food and lodging. There are a limited number of scholarships available through a separate application.

For more information and to register, please visit vet.osu.edu/VetCamp. Registrations are due by 5:00pm on Friday, April 26, 2019.

4-H Special Needs Camp is July 5th-7th, 2019

“4-H is for everyone,” but sometimes accessibility issues deny youth with disabilities the opportunity to attend camp. In Ohio, a statewide 4-H camp is held at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson, Ohio for young people with disabilities and their caregivers.  Being a typical kid is what Camp is all about and it is no different for special needs youth. Our goal is to give Campers a true experience of Camp while meeting their needs and letting them set their own pace for fun and success!

The Camp allows youth to actively participate in activities such as environmental science, crafts, music therapy, outdoor education, aquatic skills, and self-reliability.  The youth, along with their caregivers, enjoy 2 nights and 2 days of a camping experience that may not have been available otherwise through 4-H.

If you would like more information about attending or supporting Special Needs Camp at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp, please contact Michelle Stumbo, Camp Program Director, at 740-992-6696 or Stumbo.5@osu.edu.

2019 Registration Form is available here! 

2019 Mini Camp!

Mini Camp will be held on May 10-11, 2019 at 4-H Camp Ohio. Mini Camp is a great opportunity for our members who are in their last year as a Cloverbud, or are in their first of second year as a 4-H project member. This one night camp is a great way for participants to get a “taste” of 4-H Camp. They will do a camp tour, complete counselor led activities and get to sleep in a cabin. We have found that youth who attend Mini Camp are more likely to attend 4-H Summer Residential Camp and are less likely to feel homesick while at camp. Registration Form and payment are due Friday, April 26, 2019 to the Licking County OSU Extension Office, 771 E. Main St., Suite 103, Newark, Ohio 43055.
