2020 Brown County 4-H Camp

Brown County 4-H multi-county Camps at Canter's Cave 4-H 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 3rd 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, Cat Rockey, 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!

Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to cancel all Ohio State University Extension in-person programming through July 6. This includes all 4-H programs, activities, and events. In addition, all 4-H camps through August 31 are cancelled. Virtual programming will continue. County OSU Extension 4-H professionals will share important updates and information with you as we develop and provide new online opportunities. We know the experiences will be different than we had hoped, yet we remain committed to working together to grow future generations of true leaders.
