Washington County Bull’s Eye 4-H Club offers a series of sessions in the Spring and Fall at 4-H Camp Hervida. There are nine disciplines offered in Ohio that adults can become certified in to then be offered at the local level:
Hunting & Wildlife
Some of these disciplines are not offered in Washington County due the lack of certified volunteers to teach the sessions at Bull’s Eye club meetings.
