    Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp was a 2019 recipient of a Southern Ohio Agricultural and Community Development Foundation (SOACDF) Youth Development Grant. 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. This will allow us to accommodate more campers, but also give us another rental space for the community to use” said Michelle Stumbo, Board Past President.
