This camp is available to 4-H members in grades 3-6 who are enrolled in 4-H in Miami County. This 3 day, 2 night camp brings together nearly 250 youth to learn and make new friends. Some of the activities kids will participate in at camp include hiking, archery, crafts, nature, foods, sports, rock climbing, swimming, and so much more!
