Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.

4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 14. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence and responsibility, have a lot of fun and make new friends.

Many exciting activities and adventures await campers. 4-H’ers can spend their days participating in pursuits such as swimming, canoeing, high and low ropes, archery, recreation games, dances and nature hikes. These activities are a fun way to help young people learn new skills and develop a greater appreciation for the environment and wildlife.

Camper safety is a priority at 4-H Camp. All staff and volunteers are trained and undergo background checks prior to camp. Each camp will have an on-site health care provider at all times to take care of campers’ needs.

There are four regional camps, all of which have been accredited since 2005 by the American Camp Association.

4-H’ers from Logan County will attend West Kentucky 4-H Camp in Dawson Springs, Kentucky from July 11-15. Registration forms are due by June 10.

For more information about 4-H Camp, contact the Logan County Cooperative Extension Service or visit the 4-H Camp website athttp://www2.ca.uky.edu/4-h/camp.

Educational programs of the Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
