Ohio 4-H Special Needs Camp

March 22, 2017
Application due by APRIL 1.

Ohio 4-H Special Needs Camp is planned for July 7th-9th, 2017 at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp! This event targets youth ages 8-19 who have needs that cannot be accommodated for at traditional 4-H Camps. Ohio 4-H Special Needs Camp is designed with individual youth in mind and is tailored to their needs. It gives youth a chance to try new things in a safe environment while building relationships. When campers and caregivers were asked about the Camp in the past, 100% of those surveyed stated that they want to return next year and one caregiver stated, “Everyone helps and all the kids have a great time. No one is left out.” Campers feel the same way – one Camper listed their favorite memory as, “Seeing all of the kids, staff, counselors & parents.”

Thanks to the generous support of the Ohio 4-H Foundation, costs are kept to a minimum and Campers are exposed to experiences including archery, music, crafts, nature, campfire, horseback riding, and more. This year’s theme of, “Finding the Superhero in YOU” will even include a visit from the Dark Knight of Gotham City!
