4-H summer camp registration starts April 1

(Posted March 18, 2024)

Madison County’s summer 4-H Camp will take place June 7-11 at 4-H Camp Clifton in Yellow Springs. Campers will saddle up to explore life in the Wild West with the 2024 theme of “Boots and Barrels.”

Camp offers a wide variety of fun and educational activities. Campers participate in daily workshops and activities including nature, sports, science, dancing, cooking, high ropes, rock climbing, zip line, canoeing, archery, shooting sports, creeking, hiking, arts and crafts, and more. Rodeo games, leather tool crafting, and cowboy cooking are some of this year’s special activities.

4-H Camp Clifton is located next to John Bryan State Park, 12 miles south of Springfield in Greene County. It is just off of Clifton Road near the Clifton Mill.

Campers live in rustic cabins with 10 to 12 campers and trained counselors. A central dining hall provide campers with nutritious meals. A large, open-air lodge and a large swimming pool provide recreational activities. Other facilities include the nature center, craft hall, canteen, high ropes, team challenge course, campfire circle, and sports fields.

Registration starts April 1 and is open to 4-H and non-4-H youths who are 8 to 13 years old. The earlybird cost is $260 for 4-H members and $310 for non 4-H members. After May 20, the price goes to $280 for 4-Hers and $330 for non-4-Hers. After May 9, spots will open up to Logan County 4-Hers, as well.

Scholarships and fundraising is available to families to help offset some of the cost of camp. The 4-H Advisory Committee and the London Kiwanis Club sponsors $50 scholarships.
