** YOUTH ARE NOT PERMITTED TO HAVE OR USE CELL PHONES OR IPODS/MP3 PLAYERS WHILE IN CAMP **
This is a policy of 4-H Camp Ohio. Youth found with phones or electronics will have the item confiscated for the remainder of the program.
Camp is a three-day event, with check in starting at 5:00pm Friday, May 5, 2017. Youth receive instruction in spin casting, fly rod casting, lure making, fly tying, water safety, and more. There is also fishing in the camp pond, which will be stocked for our program. Advanced youth will also learn fly-fishing basics on the stream, canoeing, and boat handling. Youth can return a fifth year to build a rod or as a Junior Instructor. Fishing in the camp pond is available for adults and youth during their free time only. Persons over 16 years old must possess a valid Ohio Fishing License.
Please bring your own fishing rods, reels, and tackle. To catch trout, bring rods with light line and #10 hooks or small spinner bait. Third and fourth year youth may also bring their own fly fishing rods and equipment. For pond fishing there are bluegill, bass and trout, so size your equipment accordingly.
Junior Anglers activities are carried out rain or shine so rain gear and warm clothes are a must. Bring toiletry items, towels, sleeping bags or linens with a warm blanket. Spending money is optional but quarters are needed for the pop and snack machines. WE ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR STOLEN ITEMS.
To put on a program this comprehensive, it is necessary to call upon sponsors for assistance. Some of the help needed includes table set up, group leaders, dorm supervision, and clean up supervisors. We leave the camp cleaner than we found it. This is ALL attendees’ responsibility. NO ONE is to leave the camp until it is clean!
Each attending adult may sponsor up to three youths. All applications should be filled out completely and legibly. You may make as many copies of the registration form as needed. No application will be processed without payment of $75 per attendee attending. REGISTRATIONS MUST BE POSTMARKED BY APRIL 23, 2017. NO LATE REGISTRATIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED! No refunds will be made for cancellations after April 24th. No registrations will be accepted at camp!
It is the responsibility of the attending adult sponsor to supervise their youths, including behavior, adherence to Camp rules, attendance at activities and classes, clean up, and their general well being. If the sponsor is not the parent or legal guardian of a youth, the sponsor must have a phone number where a parent or legal guardian can be reached in the event of an emergency.
