4-H Camper Roundup
4-H camps offer an important “learning laboratory” where young campers develop life skills, such as responsibility, decision-making, getting along with others, cooperation, leadership, and increased self-esteem.

Three 4-H camps are offered in Ottawa County. Cloverbud Camp, open to youth in kindergarten through second grade, will be held June 18 and 19 at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. The 4-H Junior Camp, open to youth in third through seventh grade, will be held June 24-28 at the Erie County 4-H Camp on Kelleys Island. Science Camp, open to youth in third through seventh grade, will be held Aug. 6-8 at the Ottawa County Fairgrounds. Cloverbud and Science Camps are day camps; and the Junior Camp is overnight camping.

Camps are themed to create fun and educational activities. This year’s themes are “Everyday Heroes” for Cloverbud Camp; “It’s in the Bag at 4-H Camp” for Junior Camp and “Lab Coats, Goggles and Fun…Oh My” at Science Camp.

Participants need not be 4-H members to attend 4-H camp. Camp fees are  $40 for Cloverbud Camp; $160 for Junior Camp and $50 for Science Camp. 4-H holds a fundraiser to help participants work off their camp fee. Scholarships are also available.

Parents and children can learn more about 4-H Camps at a Camper Round-up Tuesday, May 14 from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Ottawa County Ag Complex, 240 W. Lake St., Oak Harbor.  The Round-up will offer the opportunity to talk to staff and counselors, watch camp videos and sign-up for camp. Those attending can receive an additional reduction in the camp fees.
