Summer Camp – July 5-8, 2018
4‑H camps provide youth with the chance to meet new people, have fun, and experience the great outdoors. Winnebago County’s Summer Camp is a 4 day, 3 night experience for youth in 3rd-8th grades. Campers learn about the natural world, themselves and each other at the Upham Woods Outdoor Learning Center located in Wisconsin Dells (https://fyi.uwex.edu/uphamwoods/).
Youth stay in cabins with about 10 campers, 2-3 youth counselors and 1 adult. Camp activities include hiking, canoeing, archery, swimming, nature, crafts, recreation, a low element challenge course, and so much more. Camp activities are planned and run by 20 youth counselors (grades 9-13) with support from 12 adult chaperones, and 3 Upham Woods Naturalists.
