Camp will be held, this year in the cool, tall pines of Mingus Mountain near Prescott. 4-H Camp is open to all 4-H members, ages 9 to 19. The Camp Committee is planning the program which will include variety of activities. Swimming, canoeing, Art’s & Crafts, Archery, Nature Hikes, Campfires, Camp Skills, Gun Safety, New Games, Sing A-Longs, and MORE!!!

Early Bird Rate the cost for Camp will be $200.00 for the first member of the family, and $180.00 for each additional member, for the five-day event. Because of the popularity of Camp, and the limited space, applications will be taken on a first come, first serve basis and limited to 80 spots. We anticipate filling all 80 camper slots very quickly.

For this reason camp applications will be for 4-H members only unless space permits. Applications will be placed on a first come basis. Camp applications MUST BE RECEIVED BY FRIDAY, JULY 3, 2015 at the County Extension Office, 101 E. Beale Street, Suite A, Kingman, AZ 86401. Start Planning NOW it’s going to be a GREAT summer!!!!
