4-H Camp Counselors Impact Youth in Positive Ways
Twenty local teens will soon be serving as 4-H Camp Counselors for over 100 youth for the 2022 4-H Day Camp in Polo, IL. While camp is an amazing way to teach younger youth to make good decisions, learn to be independent, make life-long friendships, and gain new skills, the experience for camp counselors is just as impactful, if not more. Stepping in as a parent and taking on the responsibility for someone else’s child is a powerful experience for our teen counselors who have been participating in mandatory training since February. 

4-H Day Camp is set for June 14, 15, and 16 at Rock River Christian Camp, Polo, IL. Youth may choose to participate in all three days of camp or attend the dates that work best in their schedule. 4-H Camp is open to ALL boys and girls, ages 8-14 by June 14, 2022. 4-H membership is not required; however, all participants will be expected to comply with the same high behavior standards expected of 4-Hers. Youth need to be interested and excited to have a day of outdoor fun, away from television and technology.
The cost each day is $70. All camp fees must be paid in full by May 27, 2022. Download a camper application online or register online at:
