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.
2018 Mini Camp Participants
Cloverbud Day Camp will be held on Saturday, June 15, 2019 at 4-H Camp Ohio. Day Camp is open to both youth enrolled in Licking County 4-H as Cloverbuds and those who are Cloverbud age. Youth going into kindergarten in fall of 2019 up through current 2nd graders are welcome to attend Cloverbud Day Camp. Registration form can be found here and is due with payment (cash or check only) to the Licking County Extension Office by May 17, 2019.

We had so much fun on our Island Adventure at 4-H Summer Camp! We hope your child came home with lots of stories and memories to share. We took lots of pictures throughout the week. Check them out on the Licking County 4-H Facebook page.
We ended up with several items left in our lost and found. If your child is missing an item or two, please call our office or stop in to see if we have what you are missing. We will hold the items for about a month and then will donate whatever is not claimed.
