Searching for an affordable, one-of-a-kind experience for your children this summer?
This year’s Camden County Extension 4-H Residential Camp theme is “The Amazing Race: 4-H Edition.” Camp will be held at Windermere in Roach is July 17-20. Enrollment is now open.
Programs range from traditional camp activities such as swimming, crafts, and camp fires to caving, fishing, canoeing, inflatables and environmental education. Camp is tailored for boys and girls ages 8-12 and is led by 4-H teen camp counselors who mentor campers in various activities throughout the camp week.
“Our goal is to create unique, meaningful camp experiences that will not break the bank,” said Michele Kroll, MU Extension community development specialist. “Our camps boast a rich history that dates back to over 80 years of camping experience, and we are proud to continue offering exceptional, diverse camping opportunities in beautiful environments throughout the state. Our local MU Extension council worked hard with a fund raising campaign from the support of local area organizations and businesses to raise money for camperships so that there wouldn’t be a financial barrier to attend 4-H camp.”
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.
