Volunteer for 4-H summer camp June 30-July 3

RICHMOND — If you would like to make summer special for Madison County 4-H campers, volunteer to help out as we take more than 240 4-H’ers to summer camp where they have four days and nights of fun and excitement.

Campers can hike, swim, dance and spend time learning about the environment, their friends and themselves. And, Madison County’s 4-H camp is accredited by the American Camping Association.

But, this experience is only possible when there are enough camp volunteers. Teen and adult camp volunteers (ages 16 and up) are needed for Madison County 4-H Camp, June 30-July 3.

All interested volunteers must attend a camp interview, pass a background check, and be able to attend a mandatory training session prior to camp!

Teen Volunteers attend camp at no cost and camp is a great way to earn community service hours!

All approved adult volunteers are eligible to receive a camp scholarship to give to the camper of their choice!

A 4-H camp volunteer is like a parent who gives encouragement, direction, provides discipline, gives counsel, and loves spending time with children. Camp volunteers are also the friends who offer companionship, friendship, an ear to listen and support when things look down.

Although good camp volunteer leaders are different in many ways, they have one thing in common: they enjoy giving time to 4-H and are rewarded with a sense of accomplishment when their cabin is having fun at camp.

Camp volunteers stay in cabins and teach classes. They organize games and activities. They’re tireless dancers and cookie consumers, experts at removing knots from shoelaces, awesome coaches, and have no limit of funny expressions and goofy-ness. Camp volunteers are willing to rise early in the morning and go to bed late at night. And for four days, are the heroes in the eyes of so many campers.

If you are interested in volunteering for summer camp please contact the Madison County Cooperative Extension Service at 623-4072. An application will be mailed to you. Completed applications should be returned before June 1st.


Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability or national origin.
