4-H Summer Camp Registration Going On Now

Register for 4-H Summer Camp

 The Santa Rosa County 4-H Program is accepting registrations for the annual 4-H Camp program.  Santa Rosa County 4-H Camp will be held the week of July 9 – 13 at Camp Timpoochee in Niceville, Fl.  Youth do not have to be 4-H members to participate in 4-H Camp.

Applications will be accepted until Friday, June 15, 2012 or until the camp is full.  If you are interested in participating in 4-H Camp call the Santa Rosa County 4-H Office at 623-3868 for a registration packet.

4-H Camp is designed for youth ages 8-12 years of age as of September 1, 2011.  Youth ages 13-18 years of age may participate in camp as camp counselors or counselors in training.

Cost for the week of camp is $230 which includes lodging, meals, tee shirt and canteen.  There is a reduced camp fee for youth who qualify for free or reduced lunch.

Camper Orientation will be held June 15, 2012, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm as well as June 19, 2012, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm.  New campers must attend one of the camper orientations.

Camp is designed to be a fun, informal, educational program for youth.  Activities include the traditional hiking, canoeing and campfire as well as some new and different activities such as marine science and peer mentoring programs.  Camp always offers opportunities for youth to make new friends, enjoy the outdoors and get away from home. 4-H Alumni Sara May recalls her camping experiences, “I always couldn’t wait to get to camp in the summer, and I cried on the way home! It was just a huge part of my childhood.”

To register, please contact the Santa Rosa County 4-H Program Assistant, Prudence Caskey at (850) 623-3868 between 8:00 am and 4:30 pm weekdays.  Hearing impaired individuals may call Santa Rosa County Emergency Management Service at 983-5373 (TDD).
