Chaperone Interest Form (Due May 12) 
We are happy to announce that 2024 camp planning has kicked off and we are looking for chaperones. (Camp Chaperones are the best!) To make camp happen we need a 1:10 adult to youth ratio. We are looking for 8 additional volunteers for base and 5 for outpost camp. Without enough adults to help supervise, camp can’t happen.

Camp Chaperones can be used in a variety of ways and for different lengths of time.  Please use this form to let us know your interest level in volunteering.  This form does not commit you to volunteering.  It will only be used to let the Educators know who might be interested.  Your county 4-H Educator will reach out to you with more information.
Camp Dates: June 6-9
Base Camp- Sleeping in Cabins
Outpost Camp- Sleeping in Tents (Talk to us if you want to bring a camper that could also be used as the nurses station)
