Cloverbud Day Camp – June 6th – 8th:

Youth that are in kindergarten or higher and 5-8 years old as of January 1st of this year are eligible to register.  Cloverbud Day Camp will be held from 9 am – 12 noon each day at the Fisher Auditorium on the OSU Wooster Campus.  This year’s camp will feature many fun hands-on learning and recreational activities.  Registration will open May 1st.


Junior Camp – June 30th – July 3rd:

Youth that are in the 3rd grade or higher and ages 8-13 as of January 1st of this year, can attend our 3-night, 4-day residential camp at 4-H Camp Ohio in Louisville, Ohio.  There are dozens of fun activities including but not limited to: canoeing, kayaking, zip lining, climbing the adventure tower, human foosball, 9-square in the air, gaga pit, stream studies, nature exploration, swimming, water games, scuba diving, archery, riflery, high ropes courses, campfires, line dancing, and much more.


Why should youth attend camp?

Summer camps have been credited with being full of transformational experiences for young people as they offer safe environments for youth to become more independent, confident, and engaged citizens.  Camps challenge youth and teens to step out of their ordinary routines and comfort zones and participate in new activities often not available in their own backyards. For more information and/or to register for a camp – please contact the Wayne County Extension Office.
