Due to multiple reasons, camp will only be for 9-13 year olds this year. 7-8 year olds please check out our Greenbush camp below! For safety, space, plumbing, and other reasons we can not house all our youth at Cedar Bluff camp. Please call the Extension office and speak with Katie if you have questions. I would be happy to speak with you. 7-8 year olds please check out the many opportunities Greenbush has to offer! County Club Day scholarships still apply to Greenbush.
Cedar Bluff 4-H camp is held annually in Coffeyville Ks. The schedule will come out in May along with other camp information. Check-in will be June 17th starting at 8:30 a.m. Campers will set up their cot area and then join us in the main building for introductions and instructions for the day. Youth will be divided into groups of 6-8 campers with high school counselors. Multiple extension agents will be on site throughout the day. Youth will participate in stem learning activities, science experiments, insect scavenger hunts, etc. Lunch, supper, and smores at the campfire will be provided. In late afternoon we will travel to the Coffeyville pool to cool off. Agents will transport youth by van. After getting back we will get ready for supper then smores at the campfire, followed by a dance/movie. Check-out will begin the following morning at 8:30 a.m. For questions please call Katie at 620-331-2690 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
