Kids head to summer camp on Kelleys Island

Did you realize you can go to camp on an island? You can! Each summer, youth from across the state travel to this camp which is located on Kelleys Island. Did you realize youth do NOT need to be 4-H members to attend 4-H camp? It’s true!
Organized camping is more than mosquito bites and soggy tennis shoes. Camp is an important “learning laboratory” where children develop life skills, such as responsibility, decision making, getting along with others, cooperation, leadership and increased self-esteem.
