Registration is now open and closes on May 31, 2020. 

NEW: This year we are using Eventbrite to register youth to participate in the camps. You can view descriptions and instructions on the event site now, register, and pay for your child’s spot in the camp. We hope this will be a stream-line process for parents to complete the necessary form in one place. 

Most of the camps this year will be from 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., however early drop off is available upon request up to 30 minutes before the start of camp with the understanding that the camp does not begin until the time listed.

Parents must enroll or re-enroll their youth in 4HOnline in order to complete the registration under the 2020 4-H Summer Fun Program club. Note: If you would like to use 4-H scholarship bucks towards summer camp costs, please contact the 4-H office for further instructions. 

If you want to involve your teenagers between the ages of 14-18 involved in the summer, you can sign them up to volunteer as a Counselor-in-Training (CIT) to assist throughout the camp and learn leadership and programming skills. CITs will also get certified in First Aid and CPR as a part of the program. We couldn’t run the Summer Fun program without our teen leaders, so they are important in making the camps a success. To apply, fill out this CIT Application and send it to the 4-H office.
