Northern Illinois 4-H Camp

Northern Illinois 4-H Camp

We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting 4-H Camp - "Day Camps" this year! These three days will give campers a similar experience to past 4-H camp without the overnight. We will again be attending Rock River Christian Camp, in Polo, Illinois. 4-H Day Camp will offer a variety of safely-led activities such as: archery, crate stacking, arts and crafts, hiking, zip-line, swimming, team building and large group games, as well as end each day with a camp evening program.

The dates set are June 14, 15 & 16, 2022.  Camp is open to a total of 100 youth each day that are between the ages 8-14 as of June 14.  Youth may choose to attend, one, two or all three days for 4-H Day Camp. Youth do not have to be in 4-H to attend.  4-H Day Camps will run from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. with check-in and check-out procedures each day.
