Update on 4-H Day Camp

This week it has become clear that we have two “really popular” days for 4-H Day Camp, both on Saturdays (June 5 and 19). So that we can offer the best experience, we are working to schedule everyone on those two days and cancelling the Sunday camps. If you are one of the Sunday campers, you will be receiving a phone call to reschedule. We predict that 200 youth will be attending a Wood County 4-H Day Camp this year!! If you haven’t registered, get your forms in by Monday (preferably for June 19). We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding; it was like hitting a pinata blindfolded.
