Ohio 4-H Shooting Education Camps Seeking Camp Counselors

The Ohio 4-H Shooting Education Camps are seeking camp counselors! We have two different opportunities for current 4-H’ers and even alumni.

The basics:  

Applications are due through the online system by March 15th: https://go.osu.edu/shootingsportscounselor

The position description and another letter with information is provided in the application. You can also find the link to the application on the Ohio 4-H Shooting Education Camp page: https://ohio4h.org/families/members/events-opportunties/shooting-sports/4-h-shooting-ed-camp

Dates: Junior Camp – June 27th-30th (campers arrive the 28th; staff arrive late afternoon of the 27th)

Senior camp: — July 13th-19th (campers arrive the 14th, staff arrive the later afternoon of the 13th)

The details:

TEENS: must be at least 14 years old as of January 1st, 2019 to counsel at Junior Shooting Education Camp. This is a great opportunity for youth in your county who are counselors and just want more time at camp. NO shooting sports experience required! This is also a great opportunity for those youth who are involved in shooting sports to give back to younger members. We have had several of our teens serve in this role and it gets kids who may never think about being a county camp counselor an opportunity to take on a leadership role in a project area they are invested in.

ALUMNI: Senior Education Camp needs counselors who are 18+ this is a great opportunity for those last year counselors and a way to draw in young alumni into volunteer roles. Any 4-H alumni will need to go through the process to become an approved screened volunteer in your county, and you will be asked for a reference/recommendation as part of the selection process. In the event that we do not have enough counselors who are 18+ we will evaluate options.

 TRAINING: Those youth who are shooting sports teens but not county counselors will need to work with their respective county 4-H professionals to complete the training in the county. The past three years we have offered training at the spring instructor workshop, but have not had enough interest. I appreciate your help and support in working with these teens to provide them the necessary training.

All applicants will need to fill out the online application and complete a phone or zoom interview with  Christy Clary.
