Let’s go explore camp at Open House!

Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp is having it’s annual Open House on Sunday, May 5th from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. This is a good opportunity for 4-H Advisors, club members and parents to come and see our wonderful facility and enjoy a day at camp. Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp offers campers a chance to learn, develop life skills and form attitudes that will help them to become self–directing and a productive member of society. Camp becomes a learning laboratory that allows youth to apply their new knowledge to real-life situations. Since the camp day is even longer than a school day, learning continues around the clock while campers make new friends from Highland County as well as surrounding counties all while having fun.
