REMINDER: Licking County 4-H Cloverbud Day Camp Registrations Due!

CLOVERBUD DAY CAMP REGISTRATIONS ARE DUE FRIDAY, MAY 17, 2019. Late registrations will be accepted with a late fee until Friday, May 24, 2019.

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.

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 4-H Cloverbot Challenge

The 4-H Cloverbot Challenge is a statewide event designed just for our Cloverbud 4-H’ers. Teams work together to research a topic, build a model out of interlocking bricks and create a poster highlighting their experience. On June 29, the teams will come together at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center to share their work, visit with one another, participate in kid-friendly activities, and celebrate their efforts with a closing celebration and award ceremony.

Teams may have a minimum of two members, but no more than eight, and are coached by an adult team leader. Details and registration information can be found at https://ohio4h.org/families/cloverbuds/cloverbot-challenge

2018 4-H Summer Camp and Cloverbud Day Camp are a Wrap!

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.

Mark your calendars for next year:

  • 4-H Summer Camp – June 13-17, 2019
  • Cloverbud Day Camp – June 15, 2019
