The Kids' Outdoor Science Camp, held at 4-H Camp Palmer near Harrison Lake State Park in Fayette, is scheduled for June 9-12. This popular camp is open to youth from age 8 (and 3rd grade) through 14 (finishing the 8th grade) living in the three state area.
Exciting programs will evolve around this year's theme, "Camp is Hot… Weather or Not!" Campers will explore their natural environment and enjoy outdoor adventure with a scientific focus. They will also have the opportunity to climb high ropes, hike, swim, and canoe along with a host of traditional camp activities including crafts, evening dances and campfire programs.
The camp fee is $132 and covers all program supplies for the four-day and three-night event including meals, overnight accommodation, T-shirt, activities, and many great camp experiences.
Campers are supervised by a team of trained teen counselors, adult staff, and a nurse who stays at the camp throughout the week. Meals are provided family style and small cabins and bunk beds help develop friendships and social skills.
The capacity of this camp is large but not unlimited. Early registration is very important to insure acceptance, as camp could fill up before the May 24 deadline.
The Kids' Outdoor Science Camp is sponsored in cooperation with the Soil and Water Conservation Districts and Ohio State University Extension Offices of Northwest Ohio. For further information or to obtain a registration form please call the OSU Extension, Wood County office at (419) 354-9050 or visit our website at wood.osu.edu.
