1. 4-H Camp Needs You Now

    Jun 4, 2020

    Ohio 4-H has made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel 4-H camps through August 31st. The health of our campers, staff and volunteers are our highest priority. However, this decision has impacted our camps financially and will make it difficult to maintain or retain our camps.

  2. Experience a bit of home!

    Jun 4, 2020

    We know that everyone is missing camp this summer. We wish that we could have all our campers at camp with our cabins full, songs being sung at the top of our lungs, swimming in the pool and creating memories around the campfire. But we also know that canceling camps this summer was the best decision to keep our campers safe and healthy.

The grant was for $250,000 with a $50,000 match to fund a new sleeping and conference facility and update the HVAC system in Harrison Powell Lodge. “We are excited for this new opportunity to expand our sleeping facilities and update Harrison Powell.
