2010 4-H CAMP

Harrison County 4-H’ers will be attending 4-H Camp, Tuesday-Friday, June 28- July 2  at North Central 4-H Camp near Carlisle, Ky. in Nicholas County. We will be camping with 4-H’ers from Franklin, Owen, Scott, and Woodford counties. 4-H Camp includes fun, fellowship, and interesting classes, learning new and important things and meeting new friends. Activities will include swimming, Sally Down the Alley, carnival, campfire, demonstrations, and others. Youth ages 9-14 may attend. All you need to do is stop by the Harrison County Extension Office and fill out a 4-H Camp registration form. The camp fee for 2010 will remain the same as last year $115. There will be a camp orientation meeting Monday, June 21 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at the Harrison County Extension Office.

The deadline for signing up for 4-H Camp is June 1. Openings are filled on a first come first serve basis so get your registration form and fee in as soon as possible.

We are also looking for responsible parents and other adults to attend 4-H camp as counselors. If you want to go to 4-H Camp, please pick up an application at the Harrison County Extension Office.
