WHAT IS 4-H CAMP AND WHAT DOES IT OFFER?
Where is Seneca County 4-H Camp?
Seneca County 4-H Camp is located on Kelleys Island in Lake Erie. Campers make the trip across the lake on a ferry boat.
Campers live in a cabin with other campers and their trained counselors. A modern kitchen and central dining hall provide for nutritious meals. The beach offers a unique swimming area watched by a certified lifeguard at all times. Other facilities include the Nature Center, Craft Hall, Campfire Circle, Recreation Hall, and Sports Fields.
4-H Camp offers youth the opportunity to develop leadership skills, citizenship awareness, responsibility, and self-esteem in a group living situation away from home.
4-H Camp offers a variety of activities for each camper such as: swimming, nature, water activities, crafts, and much more. We also have great programs and special events to keep you busy in the afternoon and evening.
Who Can Come To Camp?
Any youth at least 8 years old AND in the 3rd grade (as of Jan. 1) through youth who are 14 by the first day of camp. Youth who are 14 as of January 1st are NOT eligible to attend camp. We will process registrations for youth who are members of a community 4-H club first, giving priority to 4-H members first.
You receive additional information prior to camp telling you what to bring and how to get to 4-H Camp Kelleys Island. It is your responsibility to find transportation to and from the Kelleys Island Boat Line. Full time participation is required!
How Much Will It Cost?
The cost of camp is $175 for 4-H members and $185 for non 4-H members. Early registration is encouraged to ensure a spot. Once cabins are full, a waitlist will be initiated.
Health And Safety
Assuring the health and safety of each camper is important to us at 4-H Camp. There are two registered nurses present throughout camp. Campers are covered by a health and safety policy while involved in camp programs. Activities are supervised by responsible adults and counselors who are trained in camping programs. Rules and regulations have been developed and will be enforced for the health and safety of all individuals.
