2013 4-H Camp Photo
You have all been anxiously awaiting it, and now it is here! The 2015 Marquette County 4-H Summer Camp will be held July 7-9 at Clear Lake Education Center, located in the Hiawatha National Forest. Campers (ages 9-13) will enjoy participating in a variety of fun, hands-on educational activities while at camp, including a high ropes challenge, nature exploration, swimming, astronomy, arts and crafts, drama, and lots of group activities. Youth do not have to be a current 4-H member to attend camp.
Older youth (ages 14 and up) are needed to serve as Junior Counselors. Youth serving in these positions will provide leadership (along with an Adult Counselor) to a cabin of younger campers. We are asking Junior Counselors to attend a Counselor Training the day before Camp begins (July 6th at 2:30 p.m.). Junior Counselors will be given the opportunity to participate in high ropes after their group of campers have gone through the course and for a $25 fee. Adult MEN are needed to serve as Counselors. Adults serving in these roles must complete the MSU Extension Volunteer Selection Process before they are accepted as volunteers. Adult Counselors provide leadership for a cabin of campers and youth counselors.
The Early Bird cost of 4-H Camp is $55 per youth already enrolled in 4-H ($65 for youth not yet enrolled in 4-H) and includes everything campers will need; daily meals, snacks, lodging, all program supplies, crafts, and instruction. This price goes up after June 5th to $70 for 4-H members and $80 for youth not yet enrolled. Youth and adult counselors attend camp at no cost.
Space at camp is limited. Registration will be completed in the order that applications and payment are received by the Marquette County 4-H Council. The final day to register a camper (space permitting) is June 26, 2015. Junior and Adult Counselor applications must be submitted to the MSU Extension office no later than June 15, 2015.
