Camp Crowder 2017
June 5-8 Or June 12-15

As you know even though the due date is May 8th Camp fills up much quicker than that.  So please get your applications in as soon as humanly possible.  I would like to see 25 people from Harrison County go to camp this year (let's win that Garfield Award!). 

Also, since we will have several attending camp this year we will need to supply Cabin Chaperones for at least one week of camp.  Cabin Chaperones sleep in the cabins with the kids and shadow them in the group.  They are there to ‘adult’ if the counselors are in over their heads.  So if you are willing to be a Cabin Chaperone or know someone who would like to be a please get them the application. We are especially always in need of male Cabin Chaperones.

Updating History of Extension in Harrison County

Recently a booklet was found about the first 50 years of extension in Harrison County Missouri. The report titled "Excerpts From History 1919-1969," contains numerous entries that are amusing and gave some perspective about how the Extension service has impacted Harrison County. You can find some of the entries here on our website, http://extension.missouri.edu/harrison/exthistharrison.aspx.  We wish to update the history of the extension center, which will celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2019. If you have any stories or information about the history of MU Extension in Harrison County in specific, please contact us by phone (660)425-6434 or email harrisonco@missouri.edu.
