Placer County 4-H Summer Camp
2017 4-H SUMMER CAMP CANCELED
It is with great sadness that we announce the cancellation of the 2017 Placer 4-H Summer Camp. Registered campers click here to process your refund.
As most of you know, we received an abundance of water in Northern California this past winter. During this year’s assessment of the camp facilities, we discovered our camp had been affected by flooding and there had been almost 4 feet of water in all of our buildings, including the kitchen. Due to the amount of water, most items were submerged. Currently, camp is not safe for our youth members and volunteers.
We are short approximately $20,000 to make necessary repairs to bring camp to safe standards. In the coming months we will be fundraising and soliciting donations. If you registered for camp, please consider donating your refund to our camp; you can do so by clicking here.
Our steadfast volunteers involved with the Joint Camp Council that serves the Placer and Nevada County 4-H Summer Camp programs will be working hard in conjunction with local professionals in the coming months to do the work necessary to get our camp facility back up to a safe standard. However, they need your help! If you or anyone you know is handy or not afraid of hard work, we are always in need of adult volunteers. Please click on the link provided and let us know how you can help.
