We are looking for outstanding high school youth who want to work as teen counselors at our overnight 4-H camp this summer (August 7-11). This is an excellent opportunity for teens to learn leadership skills, while mentoring younger children at a residential camp in Curry County.
The camp is sponsored by the Oregon State University Extension Service 4-H Youth Development Program. Campers and counselors do not have to be 4-H members to attend. All youth are welcome to participate. Campers are primarily from Port Orford, Gold Beach and Brookings who have recently completed grades 3rd –5th.
Counselors should currently be in 9th –12th grade. All they need to do is to complete and return the application form with references, and commit to attend the mandatory June 13-14 training (which will take place at Lobster Creek Campground) before camp. Applications are due by Friday, February 24th at 5pm.
Being a camp counselor is a volunteer job. There is no cost for counselors to attend -they will receive free room and board, and gain valuable life skills!Males are especially encouraged to get involved as we have a large number of boy campers who want to attend.
Additional information can be found on our website: extension.oregonstate.edu/curry or by visiting our facebook page where we have a number of photo albums dedicated to 4-H Lobster Creek Camp to give you a sense of the fun we have!: www.facebook.com/curryoregon4h
The camp is held at Lobster Creek Camp. The property is managed and maintained by Curry County Parks and Recreation. Curry County 4-H rents the entire facility for the time that we hold camp. This ensures a safe, fun environment for our campers, volunteers and staff.
2017 4-H Camp is scheduled! August 8-11, 2017 (Tuesday through Friday). Put it on your calendar and watch for more infomation.
