Wow, what a great way to kick-off our campaign! 4-H Camp Palmer is thankful for all the donations on day one of this giving campaign. Let’s keep that momentum moving forward and help us “Keep Camp Afloat!” We want to be sure opportunities for camp songs, campfire skits, and memories are there for kids next year and many years to come.
We have all acknowledged our own sadness as a result of camps being cancelled this summer, but our 4-H’ers have proven to be resilient and encouraging in the midst of this decision. Protecting our 4-H family of youth, volunteers and staff is our number one priority and we know that this was the right decision to keep everyone safe during these challenging times.
As a result of these camp closures, the loss of income is hitting 4-H Camp Palmer hard. To keep camp fees down, 4-H Camp Palmer runs on a very tight budget with little room to withstand the substantial loss they are currently experiencing. Collectively, Ohio 4-H camps will lose roughly $1.1 million dollars in revenue.
Please stand with us in support of Ohio 4-H camps, and specifically, 4-H Camp Palmer which is near and dear to our hearts. While we are anxious to welcome everyone back next year, your help is needed to sustain camp which will be without income until next camping season. By making a donation, you’re making an investment in 4-H Camp Palmer to continue growing true leaders for tomorrow.
