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
