If a parent or another person will be picking up their child on Friday they MUST turn in the Transportation Form by the first day of camp.  When parents come to pick up their child, they will stay in their car and a staff member will bring their child to them.

Who should participate?

Campers must have a positive attitude and must be ready to participate and jump in with both feet. No backing out and no homesickness allowed! Wilderness Challenge Camp is open to 4-H’ers in 7th and 8th grade along with 6th graders who will be twelve by Monday, July 17, 2017.  If you know someone interested in attending Wilderness Challenge Camp, please share this opportunity.
