  4. 4-H CAMP OHIO Campaign

    May. 21, 2020

    Dear Friends of 4-H Camp Ohio:

    Take a moment and recall one of your most favorite memories of 4-H. For many of us, those memories are vivid with the sounds and smells (good and BAD!) of 4-H camp. From camp songs, to “warm fuzzies”, counselor skits, and vespers, those summer days and nights helped us to grow and become who we are today. We want to be sure those opportunities are there for kids next year and many years to come.
