If your 6-, 7-, or 8-year-old is ready for an overnight 4-H camping experience, then Camp Cloverbud may be the place to start. Camp Cloverbud is specifically designed for campers (and parents) who are not yet ready for a full week of a residential camping experience. The length of stay is shorter (two nights and three days), and the staff to camper ratio is greater.
Campers still participate in all the traditional camp activities offered at 4-H camp including canoeing, swimming, archery, nature, and recreation, as well as a host of fun nighttime activities. Camp Cloverbud will be held July 13-15 at North Central 4-H Camp in Carlisle. The cost of the camp is approximately $110, which includes meals, lodging, transportation, staff, supplies, and a t-shirt.
Camp Cloverbud is a great way for young campers to enjoy the fun and camaraderie of summer camp as they experience their first “sleepaway camp.” Staff and leaders are on board and will take great care to create a caring, safe, and fun atmosphere. Educational programs of the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service serve all people regardless of race, color, age, sex, religion, disability, or national origin. For more information on Camp Cloverbud and other 4- H activities, or to receive an application contact the Jessamine County Extension Office at 859-885-4811.
