FAYETTE - The Kids’ Outdoor Science Camp, held at 4-H Camp Palmer near Harrison Lake State Park near Fayette, is scheduled for Wednesday through Saturday, June 4 and 7. This popular camp is open to youth from eight years of age (and third grade) through 14 (finishing the eighth grade) living in the three state area. Deadline to register is Monday, May 19.
Exciting programs will evolve around this year’s theme, “Who Dunnit… at Science Camp?” Campers will explore their natural environment and enjoy outdoor adventure with a scientific focus. They will also have the opportunity to climb high ropes, hike, swim and canoe along with a host of traditional camp activities including crafts, evening dances and campfire programs.
The camp fee is $137 and covers all program supplies for the four day / three night event, including meals, overnight accommodation, T-shirt, activities and many great camp experiences.
Campers are supervised by a team of trained teen counselors, adult staff and a nurse who stays camp throughout the week. Delicious meals are provided family-style, with small cabins and bunk beds to facilitate the development of friendships and social skills.
The capacity of this camp is large but not unlimited. Early registration is very important to ensure acceptance, as camp could fill up before the Monday, May 19 deadline.
The Kids’ Outdoor Science Camp is sponsored in cooperation with the Soil and Water Conservation districts and The Ohio State University Extension offices of Northwest Ohio.
