Make the Best Better at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp

Canter's Cave 4-H Camp

Each year more than 1,500 4-H members from 10 counties enjoy a summer experience at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson. Construction is currently underway to improve some of the camp facilities to make it an even better place to camp.

The $300,000 project will result in a new boys cabin, with a common area, improved restrooms, handicap accessibility and an upgraded HVAC system in Harrison Powell Lodge. It is all possible thanks to a generous $250,000 grant from the Southern Ohio Agricultural and Community Development Foundation. Camp board member are working diligently to raise the remaining $50,000 in order to complete the project in time for the 2020 camping season.

Canter’s Cave is home to camps from Adams, Brown, Gallia, Jackson, Highland, Lawrence, Meigs, Pike, Scioto and Vinton counties, the Ohio 4-H Shooting Sports camps, and the Ohio 4-H Special Needs Camp.
