4-H Camp 2012

You have all been anxiously awaiting it, and now it is here! The 2012 Marquette County 4-H Summer Camp will be held July 10-12 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 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 arrive a day early to camp for training. We will get started in the early afternoon and work on team building and leadership skills. Adult volunteers 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 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. 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 MSU Extension office. The final day to register a camper (space permitting) is June 29, 2012. Junior and Adult Counselor applications must be submitted to the MSU Extension office no later than June 15, 2012.

For questions or more information, please contact the MSU Extension office, located at 184 US Hwy 41 East in Negaunee. Call 906.475.5731 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting or email for more information.
