While COVID-19 has forced us to cancel our regular overnight 4-H Summer Camp, we can offer an alternative day-camp experience for youth who just completed 3rd through 7th grade.  The Ashland/Bayfield County 4-H Day Camp will take place on Tuesday, July 21st and/or Wednesday, July 22nd. These half-day outdoor programs will comply with University COVID protocol and will adhere to CDC guidelines.  

Our 4-H Day camp will consist of two small group rotations that center around canoeing and biking which both provide a fun and interactive experience while practicing physical distancing.  All group rotations will have 10 or less participants and masks will be worn when the group is face-to-face at the beginning and end of each rotation. (Masks will be provided for all campers who need them). 

While 4-H Day camp will be provided at no cost, we are asking campers to come to camp with:

  • Their own food or snack and a water bottle.
  • Appropriate clothing and footwear you don’t mind getting wet.  A bike and helmet. 
  • A small backpack or bag with things you need for the day (may include sunscreen or bug spray, a change of clothes, your towel, etc.)
  • Completed Health Form – any medications brought to camp must be shared with staff prior to arrival.  The 4-H Camp Health Form will be sent in the mail or you may download it as a fill-able pdf , which you may either email to the office or bring with you to camp.

This sounds great….what do I need to do to Register?

To sign up for 4-H Day Camp, Fill out the registration form below!   You will have the option to sign up Campers for either one or both days. Depending on registration numbers, campers will be assigned to either a  morning or afternoon session. 4-H Camp and confirmation of this assignment will be communicated via email by July 14th.  Space is limited so parents are encouraged to register early.

Prior to participation on the day of the event, we will monitor via a touch-less thermometer camper temperature and ask a short set of questions to ensure COVID safety for each camper and staff.  Families will be responsible for transportation to and from camp.  We have the ability to transport a limited number of bikes to the site of each camp if requested. 

NOTE:   If your son/daughter does not have access to a bicycle, please let us know ASAP, we may have access to a limited number of bicycles and/or helmets.
