It’s time to start thinking about the 2019 4-H Camping Program! The 2019 Marion County 4-H Camp will be held July 17-21 at 4-H Camp Ohio. Candidates must currently be in high school (9th – 12th grade) and at least 14 years old by Jan. 1, 2019.
Ohio 4-H Camp Counselors provide care and coordinate activities for campers during the camp week. Being a 4-H Camp Counselor is a unique, amazing experience; however, because you are in care, custody and control of minors, serving as a 4-H Camp Counselor requires a great deal of commitment, responsibility, maturity and accountability. Counselors are required to attend 24 hours of mandatory training, held over the course of multiple meetings from the time of their selection to camp week.
Our selection process for counselors is designed to mimic a real-life job selection process. As when applying for a real job, you should complete and provide all requested items for the camp counselor position. Additionally, I kindly ask that you only apply if you know that you are willing and able to commit the time and energy required to be a 4-H Camp Counselor. While it is certainly fun, it is also work.
Those wishing to apply should complete and return the application packet and references no later than September 28, 2018.
A. Application – Candidate should complete the application and return it to the Extension Office no later than September 28, 2018 at 4 p.m.
