ALLENTOWN, Pa. — Boys and girls ages 8-15 (as of Jan. 1, 2018) residing in Lehigh County are invited to attend 4-H Camp. 4-H Camp is a part of the beautiful Seven Mountains Scout Camp in Spring Mills, Pa. 4-H programs from all over eastern Pennsylvania use the facility throughout the summer. The Lehigh County camp week will be shared with youth from Carbon, Lehigh, Northampton, Monroe and Schuylkill counties.
4-H Camp, June 25-29, will be a fun week. What do we do at camp? Meet new people, learn about nature, learn new songs and games, make a craft, get challenged paddle boarding, kayaking or playing human foosball, participate in campfires, swim at the pool and a lot more fun. Join us as “A New Spirit Awakens.”
Registration deadline is May 14. The link to register for camp is https://extension.psu.edu/4-h/seven-mountains.
The $330 fee (for non-4-H members) covers lodging, meals, medical insurance, craft supplies and activities.
Seven Mountains consists of two cabin areas, each with multiple bunk beds, indoor toilets and common sitting area. Campers of similar age and gender will be housed together. Counselors will be housed in cabin areas. Additional amenities include: central dining hall, campfire amphitheater, lake front activities, swimming pool, pavilions, hiking trails and recreation areas.
A camp director, 4-H Youth Development Extension staff, nurse and adult volunteer chaperones will be present at all times. Trained teen counselors will be present in every cabin area and will supervise all activities.
Many educational and fun activities are offered by 4-H in Lehigh County. In Pennsylvania, 4-H is coordinated by Penn State Cooperative Extension through the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 4-H programs are open to all youths regardless of race, color, religion, sex, national origin or disability.
