4-H Summer Camp

 

It’s time to start getting ready for summer camp!

The camp team is looking for youth staff for summer camp at Camp U-Nah-Li-Ya. Camp this year will be June 10th-13th, and youth staff will head up to camp on June 9th to prepare for camp and have some fun!

Youth staff at camp oversee campers and participate in games and activities. You’ll work hard, but it’s also a lot of fun! You can also earn valuable life experience, get volunteer hours, and make lifelong memories. To be a counselor, you need to enjoy hanging out with younger youth (3rd-6th grade), being outdoors, and having fun.

To be eligible to be a cabin counselor, you must be 15 years old by June 1st. To be a resource counselor (a counselor who helps out in a specific area, such as art or nature), you must be 14 years old by June 1st. Counselors will meet monthly until camp starts, with a minimum of ten required hours of training.

Our first meeting will be a training/interview session on February 29th. This session is less about interviewing and more about working as a group, so come prepared to work as a team with other youth staff! Please email Laura Huff, one of the camp directors, at ljhuff94@gmail.com to register for the training or if you have any questions.

We are also looking for adult volunteers! To be an adult volunteer at camp, you must be enrolled as a volunteer on 4-H Online, have completed Volunteers in Preparation training, and attend a camp training meeting. Adult volunteers at camp help make sure camp runs smoothly – we couldn’t do it without you. You’ll help make sure that sessions go well and that everyone is safe and having fun. Please contact the 4-H office at 715-732-7514 if you would like to be an adult volunteer or if you have questions.
