    Through partnerships of Ohio State University Extension and organizations that offer aquatic education and water recreation, Ohio 4-H Sea Camp at Kelleys Island has offered hundreds of young people the opportunity to learn about aquatic science and experience a variety of recreational watersports on Lake Erie. Sea Camp is offered to youth ages 15-17 (age as of first day of camp).

    The mission of Ohio 4-H Sea Camp is to offer teenage youth an introduction to the Great Lakes through hands-on experiences in a variety of aquatic-based programs. Sea Camp will enable participants to experience Lake Erie-based activities and culture such as aquatic science, water recreation, and fishing. The program is a supervised, educational environment fostered by Ohio 4-H and The Ohio State University.

    Objectives of Ohio 4-H Sea Camp include:

    1. Participants will gain an understanding of safety applied to watercraft, sun, and open water recreation.
    2. Participants will explore a variety of potential career opportunities through learning from professionals in aquatic science, natural resources, and watersports.
    3. Participants will gain lifelong skills fostered through educational and recreational water-based activities, while developing lasting friendships and comradery with peers.

    We would like to thank the Ohio 4-H Foundation for generously sponsoring a grant to help support campers attend 2021 Ohio 4-H Sea Camp!
