Summer Youth Camp slated

The past year brought us many difficulties and changes, including not being able to hold 4-H camps in person. Washington County 4-H is planning to host a modified version of typical summer camps for youth in kindergarten through ninth grade. OSU Extension will be offering five camps this year, including three single day camps and two multi-day, day camps. Four of the camps will be held at Camp Hervida near Waterford and one camp will be held at the Washington County Fairgrounds. Please see below for the dates and camp specific information.

Cloverbud Day Camp, grades K-2: June 29 – Hervida (lunch and snack provided) – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Day Camp, grades 3-9: June 30 – Hervida (lunch and snack provided) – 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Multi-day Day Camp, grades 3-9: July 5-8 – Hervida (lunch, dinner and snack provided)

Multi-day Day Camp, grades 3-9: July 19-22 – Hervida (lunch, dinner and snack provided)

For the multi-day camps, drop off will be 9 a.m. and pick up at 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Transportation will be available from Marietta to and from camp for the multi-day camps. Campers will be expected to come everyday Monday through Thursday. The camp July 19-22 will only occur if there are over 50 campers interested in both weeks. If not, only the July 5-8 camp will occur.

Day camp, grades K-9: July 23 – Washington County Fairgrounds (lunch and snack provided). This camp will offer different activities than the camps at Hervida.

Registration costs will include all needed supplies, food for the campers, and a reusable mask and camp picture for every camper. The camp staff and camp counselors are looking forward to a fun and exciting 4-H camping season! Camp t-shirts will be available at additional cost.

For more information about the 4-H camping program or enrollment, please contact the Washington County Ohio State University Extension office at 740-376-7431, or download a registration form from go.osu.edu/hervida.
