**2020 Allen County 4-H Camp will be held on June 28 - July 2**
What is 4-H Camp
Allen County 4-H camp is held annually at Camp Palmer. Camp Palmer is 150 acres of woods, streams and fields. Programs include swimming, canoeing, indoor/outdoor recreation, nature hikes, and sports of all sorts, crafts and fishing. 4-H Camp is five days spent with friends while learning new skills and having fun! Campers stay in cabins with fully trained American Camper Association certified teens from Allen County. Adult staff as well as permanent staff and extension staff provide support to programming. The camp is also staffed with a nurse and emergency medical staff is on call at all times.
We camp to provide unique experiences for the additional growth of 4-H members. Campers can relate and apply camp leadership and camp living experiences directly into their home, school, church, and community life. 4-H Camp is a place where youth may come to experience nature. Programs offered help 4-H member better understand and appreciate nature and out-of-doors. Appreciation comes from living with it and making its intimate acquaintance. The out-of-doors provides a wonderful opportunity for each camper to develop skills or hobbies for wise use of leisure time and not regard it as a period to be dreaded "because I have nothing to do". Constructive wise use of leisure time is essential in youth and adulthood.
