4-H Camps

2023 4-H Camp:

Base Camp at Kamp Kenwood & Outpost Camp Lake Wissota

Camp is going to look a little different this year. As in not the “Covid different”, but the Seth is not a first year rookie different! So, there will be two camps! One camp will be hosted at Kamp Kenwood for grades 3-6. The second camp will be an outpost camp located at Lake Wissota Campgrounds for grades 7-9. We will be partnering up with Eau Claire and Dunn County again. Both camps will be from June 7-10, 2023. Youth that are in 9th-13th grade can sign up as camp counselors.

We are currently looking for camp counselors. If you or your youth have not been a camp counselor before and want to apply please click on the “New Counselor” link. If you or your youth have been a counselor in the past please click on the “Returning Counselor” link.

Camp counselor training will be a combination of Zoom and in person trainings. Two of the in person trainings are the dates below (May dates are an overnight training):

  • Saturday, May 6, 2023 (Located at Kamp Kenwood)
  • Sunday, May 7, 2023 (Located at Kamp Kenwood)
  • Tuesday, June 6, 2023 (Located at Camp Kenwood)

Grades 3-6  Base Camp at Kamp Kenwood
Registration for Base Camp will be sent out this spring. So, what’s going on during this Base Camp? The cook will be Melissa K. the owner of Fannies Supper Club alongside with potentially Rachel S. So, we will once again have really tasty food and probably eating better than what Seth usually makes himself. The activities at camp might include, canoeing, kayaking, painting, sculpting, tie dying, baking, playing big base and volleyball explosion and much much more. The cost of this camp will be an estimated cost of $115.

If you are signing up your youth for camp please refer to 4-H online. The title for camp is “Eau Claire-Dunn-Clark Summer Camp”. Camp sign up deadline is Sunday, May 16, 2023.
