The Ohio 4-H Foundation is hosting a fundraiser to Send S’more Kids to Camp in support of the Ohio 4-H Camping facilities again this spring. Camp Ohio, along with eleven other 4-H camps throughout Ohio will be participating in this fundraiser. The fundraiser will begin on May 24th and run through June (or possibly later). There are several way s that you can be involved:
Make a Donation! Any amounts may be donated; however, donors will receive exclusive 4-H camp themed candles if they donate $150 or more as well as a camp songbook. We will share the donation link once it becomes available.
4-H members can participate in the artwork contest! Winning artwork will be used on the various incentives for those who donate. For all guidelines and to submit your design, visit go.osu.edu/4Hart. All artwork is due by May 12, 2021.
Please spread the word! Once the fundraiser campaign has started, please share the information far and wide. 4-H Camp Ohio is special to so many and has impacted thousands of lives throughout it’s long history. Please share the information so we reach more people who may want to give a little back to camp.
Please join us for the 2021 Farmers Share Breakfast on Saturday, May 1st from 8:00-10:00am. This year, the breakfast will be held at the McKean Community Building in Fredonia (6885 North St NW, Newark, OH 43055). Enjoy breakfast on location or take it to go. The cost of breakfast is a donation with all donations going to support Licking County 4-H members attending 4-H Summer Camp. We have been so fortunate for the support of the Licking County Farm Bureau and through those who donate through the breakfast. In 2019 this breakfast raised enough funds that we were able to take $30 of every member’s camp fee as well as additional amounts off for the children of Licking County Farm Bureau members and support several full and partial scholarships for 4-Hers to attend camp. Please consider stopping by for some breakfast. If you are unable to come to the breakfast, you can always make a donation to the Licking County Farm Bureau and designate it for the Farmers Share Breakfast.
The 2021 Tractor Supply Company Spring Paper Clover Campaign will run from Wednesday, April 28th through Sunday, May 9th. Purchase a paper clover in stores during this time and the amount you donate will come back to 4-H. Licking County 4-H is fortunate to have three very supportive TSC locations: Heath, Johnstown, and Newark. Please consider purchasing a paper clover to support 4-H. The funds we receive from these campaigns helps us support our 4-H youth who are selected for state and national trips as well as other leadership opportunities.
JoAnn Fabric is still holding their Clover for Kids campaign to support 4-H! Purchase a $1 or $4 paper clover through the end of April to support 4-H. They will also have a free, take-home craft available for youth on Saturday, April 3rd starting at 11:00am. The LEGO Dots craft will be available while supplies last.
Remember those crazy camp skits and singing around the campfire? Help ensure those special memories for today’s 4-H’ers and donate to Ohio 4-H camps on OSU’s Day of Giving on Monday, March 22, 2021. Your gift to Ohio 4-H camps will go twice as far with a matching contribution from the Ohio 4-H Foundation (up to $5,000). Visit give.osu.edu/4hcamps to donate.
