Camp is making a comeback!

Last year, Ohio 4-H camps were canceled due to COVID-19 and concern for the health of campers, staff, and volunteers. It was a financial challenge for camp facilities, but this year, overnight camps are happening throughout the state. As camps slowly return to full capacity, there are still financial needs.

Today kicks off Send S’more Kids to 4-H Camp! During this campaign, you can donate to the Ohio 4-H camp of your choice at give.osu.edu/4hcamps. Donors who give $150 are eligible for an exclusive 4-H candle with a s’more and campfire scent, featuring a specially designed label by Ohio 4-H members, shown below. Help us Send S’more Kids to 4-H Camp today! Just 100 candles are available—don’t miss out!

Check out the winners of our Send S’more Kids to 4-H Camp art contest. Congratulations! 

Text: "Thanks for helping us send s'more kids to camp!" with a 4-H clover on the left and right of the text. The drawing also has a boy sitting on a log, roasting a marshmallow and a girl sitting on a log playing guitar.

Text: "Thanks for helping us send s'more kids to 4-H camp!" arched across the top of a 4-H clover. Cardinal directions are labeled on the clover. Inside the clover is a drawing of a forest, a tent, and a campfire as well as "4-H' surrounded by other clovers.

There is an outline of the state of Ohio with a s'more in the middle and a 4-H clover centered on the s'more. "thanks for helping" is arched across the top of Ohio and "us send s'more kids to camp!" is arched below the outline of Ohio.
