Hi Campers and Parents!
We are very excited to see you all within the next 2 weeks! We have tons of fun things planned for the campers; to help them be prepared for all these activities I have attached an information packet- which includes a packing list. Please read it carefully, it has all the information you need about drop off and pick up as well. If you have any questions about anything in the packet please reach out to me by email.
If you have not filled out and sent in your camper's health form, code of conduct, and media release, please fill those out and send them back to me via email or print them and bring them with you to check in. The forms can be found here. If you are a current 4-H member enrolled on 4HOnline, please let me know so I can pull these forms from your account rather than have you fill them all out again.
