Marquette County 4-H Summer Camp 2016

2015 4-H Camp Photo

You have all been anxiously awaiting it, and now it is here! The 2016 Marquette County 4-H Summer Camp will be held July 6-8 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, arts and crafts, drama, and lots of group activities. Youth do not have to be a current 4-H member to attend camp, but they will need to enroll in 4-H as part of their registration process.

Older youth (ages 14 and up) are needed to serve as Counselors. Youth serving in these positions will provide leadership (along with an Adult) to a cabin of younger campers. We are asking Counselors to attend a Counselor Training the day before Camp begins (July 5th at 2:30 p.m.). 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. 

Two Adult MEN are needed to serve as Camp Dads and two Adult WOMEN are also needed to serve as Camp Moms. Adults serving in these roles must complete the MSU Extension Volunteer Selection Process before they are accepted as volunteers. Adults provide oversight for a cabin of campers and youth counselors.

For Marquette and Alger County Residents, 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 8th to $70 for 4-H members and $80 for youth not yet enrolled. For residents of other counties, the cost is just $10 more. Youth Counselors and Adult Volunteers 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 MSU Extension Office. The final day to register a camper (space permitting) is June 17, 2016. Counselor and Adult applications must be submitted to the MSU Extension office no later than June 13, 2016.
