Join 4-H'ers from all over Santa Cruz County on February 26, 27, 28, at Snow Camp. Snow Camp is a semi-structured, family-oriented winter camp. Spend the weekend at Camp Sylvester in Pinecrest, just three miles from Dodge Ridge. Have breakfast and pack a lunch in the heated mess hall at camp before you take advantage of daytime activities on your own: ski and snowboard at Dodge Ridge; ice skate at Long Barn, sled at nearby hills or build the perfect snowman or sled run across the street from camp, play board games, cards, crafts or ping pong in the mess hall. Come back to camp for hot cocoa, dinner and evening activities. Enjoy the heated cabins and hot showers, too! Camp chores will include kitchen help, restroom, cabin and common area cleanup. Chores will be assigned by random drawing upon arrival at camp.
All 4-H members must be accompanied by a parent or other adult. All adults MUST have attended 4-H Leader Orientation, be properly enrolled in the 4-H Program and have been fingerprinted at least 1 month prior to attending Snow Camp.
Cost of Snow Camp is $150 per person, siblings under 5 are free, but not covered by 4-H insurance. Deadline for registration is Wednesday, December 10, 2015. There is a registration and information meeting on December 8, 2015, 7pm at the Aptos Grange.
We encourage each person to bring a box of hot cocoa or cider packets and a dozen cookies to share. We'll have hot water for beverages going all day. Camp does not provide linens or bedding – make sure to bring a bottom sheet, sleeping bags, pillows and towels. There are no laundry facilities on site so pack extra socks and gloves in case they get wet.
