Kelleys Island 4-H Camp Needs Your Help
Kelleys Island 4-H Camp is unlike any other camping experience in the state.
Each year of camp creates new memories, friends and experiences that campers will remember for a lifetime. Any camper, even alumni from generations back, can tell you a Kelleys Island camp story if you ask them; many of them would probably continue to talk your ear off. It is our goal to keep the Kelleys Island 4-H Camp open for future generations to enjoy, but we need your help.
2020 was supposed to be the 75th year of Kelleys Island 4-H camping experiences. As a result of the coronavirus and restrictions that have been put in place, Ohio 4-H has made the very difficult decision to suspend 4-H camps this summer. While we are saddened by this news, we fully support the decision to keep our youth safe because the health of our campers, staff and volunteers are our highest priority. However, this decision has impacted our camps financially and will make it difficult to maintain or retain our camps.
Now more than ever, Kelleys Island 4-H Camp needs your help until we can welcome our youth back in the summer of 2021. In order to meet the necessary operating expenses and make a few camp improvements, our goal is to raise $15,000. Please consider helping more than 1,000 youth from Crawford, Erie, Lorain, Medina, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca and Wyandot counties, as well as Ohio Sea Camp, Operation Military Kids camps and various school athletic & band camps.
