4-H Day and Resident Camp Requirements during COVID-19
June 18, 2020
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, additional measures must be taken to ensure the health and safety of those involved in 4-H day and resident camp programs across the state.
These measures reach beyond the existing policies and procedures contained in the 4-H Camp Safety Guidebook and the 4-H Camp Emergency Plan.
Camp will look different this year (and that’s okay)
