4-H Camp

 

June 11-14, 2018

4-H camp is a great experience for 4-H members. 4-H camp has a rich history and tradition in Missouri. 4-H staff have conducted camps for more than 60 years. Historically, 4-H camps were some of the original users of the group camp facilities found in Missouri state parks, and today many 4-H camps still use them.

4-H camp programs offer a variety of camping experiences

  • Residential Camps for one or more nights
  • STEM and Arts & Crafts
  • Community Service
  • Camp Fires
  • Teamwork Activities

Camping also provides opportunities to experience new and exciting activities. Climbing walls, swimming, archery, canoeing and many other activities are offered in a safe, supervised environment where campers can explore new areas of interest with encouragement from trained counselors and staff. To gear up for camp, check out these camp songs brought to you by the State 4-H Council, 4-H Camp Song Prep.

2018 Camp Counselor Application

Be a camp counselor is a opportunity for 4-H members age  14-18 to attend give back to younger 4-H members at 4-H camp. With that being said, we encourage all interested 4-H members to complete the camp counselor application and return it to the Boone County Extension Office by January 23, 2018. We are happy to announce that we will be selecting counselors through an application and interview process. This will be a positive learning experience for counselors as well as help staff create an effective leadership team. Camp counselor status comes with responsibility. Although camp is a fun and rewarding experience for counselors, it is still a job! Help create positive camping memories for youth in the program, just as some of your role models have done for you.

Additionally, we would like to introduce two coveted opportunities to the camp counselor structure, as we are seeking to identify two camp counselor leaders. A camp counselor leader will have the same expectations as a camp counselor in addition to increased responsibilities and more specific job duties. Please refer to page 6 of the counselor application packet for more information and instructions on how to apply.
