Clackamas County 4-H Summer Camp - July 17-22, 2017
The Clackamas County 4-H program offers youth in grades 4-8 an overnight, week-long camping experience each July. Summer Camp provides young people the opportunity to explore the outdoors, learn new skills, meet new friends, practice leadership skills, and teaches campers how to live cooperatively with others. The camping program is directed by the Clackamas County 4-H Camp Committee and is held at the 4-H Youth Conference and Education Center near Salem. Campers from outside Clackamas County are welcome to attend.
Camper registration begins in December and is often full before the earlybird deadline (June 1). Older youth who have completed grades 10-12 may apply to become a camp counselor. Counselor applicants receive more than 30 hours of leadership training prior to the camp experience. Counselor applications are available from the Extension office in December.
Returning Campers Please Note: Due to the increase in our costs, we must raise the cost to you so we can continue to provide the quality and service you’ve come to expect. We have avoided raising our prices for as long as possible, but we can no longer prolong the inevitable.
