Thank you for your interest in the 2024 Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports Senior and Junior Camps.

Senior camp is open to any youth who has completed grades 7-12 and Junior camp is open to any youth who has completed grades 3-6.

These camps focus on the safe, responsible, ethical use of firearms and archery equipment. Shooting instruction is led by trained, experienced 4-H Shooting Sports Instructors. Campers will select one shooting discipline to focus on while at camp. They will also have opportunities to sample other disciplines along with fun traditional camping activities such as crafts, boating, fishing, hiking and more. All activities are conducted under the direct supervision of our trained instructors and 4-H staff.

A limited number of Statewide Scholarships are available for these camps. These scholarships are need based. Youth who have received scholarships in previous years will not be eligible for a scholarship unless there are an insufficient number of applicants.

Senior Camp scholarships are valued at $350.00 with the total cost of camp $400.00.  Scholarship deadline for Senior Camp is June 1, 2024.

The applicant is responsible for the remainder of the camp fee. Scholarships are funded through the Friends of Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports in honor of Ms. Anita Harris, a longtime supporter of the Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports Program and past Camp Manager of Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp and Justin Marteney, shooting sports instructor and longtime supporter of Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports.
