The High Ropes course is an integral element within the Adventure program at 4-H Camp Ohio. Both youth and adults take on the course using the “challenge by choice” philosophy where they all achieve success in their own personal challenges. The current course, built in 1988, has seen over 50,000 users and the time has now come to rebuild. The absence of the course has very much been noticed by campers this year.
While this is a costly project, it will be built by a credentialed professional contractor to satisfy liability and insurance requirements.
4-H Camp Ohio’s new High Ropes course will be a wagon wheel-like design, presenting new challenges and new adventures for participants. Not only will participants have a chance to try a dozen different obstacles while 30 feet in the air, they will also bond as a team and learn about cooperation and determination. Campers’ time on the course will then come to an end with a ride down the thrilling zip line.
With the help and generosity of our camping community and the wider community who have a passion for youth development, we are confident we can make this happen for all campers in 2022!

Join us for an evening of fall fun at Leeds Farm in support of Ohio 4-H! Since 1998, Celebration of Youth has been an annual fundraiser supporting Ohio 4-H Youth Development programming and operations. This year it will be held at Leeds Farm on Sat., Oct. 2 at 6:30 p.m. EST. This will be a casual evening, to enjoy hayrides, the zip line, pumpkin jump, adult trikes, basketball shoots, and pumpkin shop. Of course, the evening wouldn’t be complete without the annual silent and live auctions. The event is 21 and over. The kids are away so the adults can play! Make your plans to join us for this evening of fall fun on the farm in support of Ohio 4-H. Purchase your ticket online at https://buckeyefunder.osu.edu/project/21549. Or read more at https://go.osu.edu/COY. If you are unable to attend the event in person, you are still able to participate in the silent auction.
There’s still time to give!
Remember those special times at 4-H camp? From campfires to warm fuzzies, counselor skits and vespers, those summer days and nights created lifelong friendships.
4-H’ers missed camp last year, but it’s back this summer and camp facilities need your help. Keeping campers safe, means fewer campers this year and as a result, less income for camps.
This summer we have a special gift for donations of $150 or more. In partnership with Bob Evans Farms and the Ohio 4-H Foundation, donors who give $150 will receive an exclusive candle with a s’more or campfire scent, featuring labels designed by Ohio 4-H members.
Help us maintain camps for the future. Please give today and invest in camp facilities to help grow true leaders for tomorrow!

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.
