2019 Brown County 4-H Camp

Brown County will be multi-county camping at Canter's Cave 4-H Camp for 2019! Campers will attend camp by age groups instead of one big camp. Camp dates have been set and listed below. Registration information will be posted for each camp once it becomes available.

I encourage you to check out the Canter's Cave website here: http://4hcanterscave.osu.edu/ or the camp Facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/CantersCave/?fref=ts Additionally, there is a camp open house on May 5th that we encourage you to attend. This will give you a chance to check out the facility and see what all it has to offer. Also, we have a camp ambassador, Libby Scott, who is available to come talk to clubs and groups to share and promote camp. Please contact the Extension Office if you would like a camp ambassador to come talk to your club!
