UW-Extension Washington County



4-H Summer Camp is offered to youth who are in grades 3-6 as of April 2017. Camp will be held June 14 – 18, 2017 at Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center in Wisconsin Dells. (Learn more about Upham Woods here: http://fyi.uwex.edu/uphamwoods/). This is a five-day, four-night camping experience where youth stay in cabins at Upham Woods. The purpose of the camp is to build life skills while youth experience nature education, archery, crafts, waterfront activities (swimming/canoeing/kayaking), recreation, campfires, teambuilding activities, and more. Counselors are youth leaders in grades 9-12. The ratio of youth to adults for the camp program is no more than 10 youth to every 1 adult. Adult chaperones are active 4-H volunteers that have completed the youth protection process. Registration forms are due April 14th, 2017. The fee is $195 for 4-H members, and includes all meals, transportation, and activities for the five-day camp. Please note that the fee has increased $10 since last year because the cost of meals at Upham Woods has increased for 2017. Registrations forms are available here: http://washington.uwex.edu/4-h-youth-development/camp/

Bring a friend to 4-H Summer Camp! 4-H members in grades 3-6 are encouraged to invite a friend to summer camp. Base camp at Upham Woods will now be open to friends of 4-H youth who wish to attend. The “friend” fee for camp is $205. Registration forms for friends of 4-H who want to attend summer camp are available here: http://washington.uwex.edu/4-h-youth-development/camp/
