4-H Camps offer unique experience at exceptional value

Searching for an affordable, one of a kind experience for your children this summer?  This year's 4-H residential camp theme is "Lewis and Clark".  Camp will be held at Windermere in Roach on Tuesday, July 17 through Thursday, July 19.  

Programs range from traditional camp activities such as swimming, crafts, songs and campfires to fishing, cave tours, inflatables, canoes and nature activities.  Camp is tailored for boys and girls ages 8 to 12 and is led by 4-H teen camp counselors who mentor campers in various activities throughout the camp week.  

The goal of 4-H Camp is to create unique, meaningful camp experiences.    4-H Camps boast a rich history that dates back to over 80 years of camping experience.  Our local MU Extension Council worked hard with a fund raising campaign and with the support of local area organizations and businesses to raise money for camperships for campers and counselors.

Camping provides an opportunity for young people to have a safe, structured experience in the outdoors with new and exciting learning opportunities.  Young people learn independence, responsibility, decision-making and getting along with others while enjoying camping activities in a supervised environment.  Camp gives kids a chance to become unplugged and tuned into their environment.

For more information and to register for camp, please contact the MU Extension Office in Camden County at 573-346-2644 or by email camdenco@missouri.edu.  Limited scholarships are available.  4-H Camp registration deadline is Friday, May 25, 2018 or until camp is filled.  Camp usually fills up early so please register early.  Cost for camp is $140 for 4-H members and $150 for non 4-H members.
