Grant/Harney County 4-H Camp
The Grant/Harney County 4-H Camp is held in July each year at the Lake Creek Youth Camp located in Logan Valley, Oregon. The camp brings youth from Grant and Harney Counties from 4th-6th grade together for a week long camping experience. Each year the previous campers along with their teen counselors choose the theme for the following year. Campers and teen counselors have an unforgettable experience and meet new friends in a breathtaking location near the Strawberry Mountain Wilderness. Camp is supervised by trained high school and adult volunteers along with 4-H/OSU Extension staff. A nurse is on duty 24/7 during the week long camp. Campers do not have to be 4-H members.
