4-H Junior Camp Open for Registration

4-H Junior Camp Open for Registration


jr camp


Washington County 4-H has opened registration for the county favorite, regional 4-H Jr Camp.  It is set to be a two-day and one-night camp held at Crooked Creek Camp outside Washington June 6-7.   Current 4-H members 4th-6th grade are invited to register for this experience in the outdoors to learn new skills, make 4-H friends and memories for a lifetime.  This camp is hosted by Region 19 counties including Washington, Johnson, Keokuk and Iowa county.


This day camp will run June 6, 8:30 a.m. – June 7, 4:45 p.m. Parents are responsible for transportation to and from camp.   Participants will experience fishing, canoeing, outdoor nature water slides, art, science, dancing, smores and more.  It is expected that participants stay for the entirety of camp and are not able to come and go to other activities.  If youth have other commitments during that time, it is suggested they wait to register for a year when they can participate fully. 


Final registration cost is $135. A discounted rate has already been figured thanks to Washington County 4-H 2022 Big Lucky Clover Raffle proceeds.  Additional scholarships are available upon request to amygreen@iastate.edu.  The fees for service will be used to offset direct expenses and to support the 4-H Youth Development County Extension Programs.


To accommodate such interest in jr camp, there will be a lottery drawing from those registered to fill the limited spots.  The drawing will be on April 17, so summer plans can move forward.  All 4-H juniors will have equal opportunity to register online between March 15-April 15 with no money down until after the lottery drawing.   Register by April 15 to https://tinyurl.com/4HJrCamp23 .  All those registered will be notified April 17 the outcome of the drawing.  Additional spots may become available from other counties after their local deadline and then offered to those on the Washington waiting list after May 1.
