2020 News for 4-H and Ohio Military Kids
Here’s to the start of new decade for Ohio Military Kids! This will be a year of appreciation as we embrace 2020 with open minds and big hearts. We extend our appreciation to those past, present, and future who contribute time and efforts to support the increasing number of military-affiliated youth served by OMK.
Ohio Military Kids is a partnership with Ohio State University Extension 4-H Youth Development and Ohio National Guard Family Readiness. This partnership allows us to put on numerous events around the state of Ohio. From overnights, daylong programs, weekend camps, and even a weeklong camp, these events are open to youth of military families. 4-H older youth and adults can volunteer for OMK events, including as camp counselors in the summer!
With our event season approaching, we are all excited to embrace the new year of 2020! Ohio Military Kids just launched their first wave of events for March and April. These events include two daylong horse camps, a zoo overnight, and a weekend farm visit. Visit our website at go.osu.edu/OMKevents to learn more about the 2020 adventures of Ohio Military Kids!

Dear 4-H members and parents,
We hope you’re excited about 4-H Camp this week and we look forward to seeing you at camp tomorrow Wednesday June 29th. We recently became aware of a major road closure on State Route 514 south of Nashville, which is on the way to camp. So listed below is important detour information that we hope makes your trip to and from Camp easier.
The 4-H Camp Ohio address is: 11461 Camp Ohio Rd, St Louisville, OH 43071
Here is a link to a map and driving directions to 4-H Camp Ohio.
To avoid the SR 514 closure just south of Nashville, Ohio….
- Head West on SR 39 out of Nashville for 3 miles.
- Turn left on County Rd 22, (just before Haudenschild Insurance)
- Travel on County Rd 22 3.6 miles
- Turn right on SR 514 and proceed toward Danville.
As a reminder registration at camp is from 3-3:30 pm. Pick up from Camp is on Sunday July 3rd at 10 am. Parents are also welcome to attend the closing ceremonies on Sunday at 9:30 am.
Should you need to access the Camper Confirmation Letter, Packing List, Health Form or other documents – they are all available on our website at: http://wayne.osu.edu/camp
We will be posting some occasional updates on our Wayne County 4-H Facebook Page and the 4-H Camp Ohio Staff occasionally post updates on the Camp Ohio facebook page as well.
