Setting 4-H Camp Records
Having broken the county’s attendance record in 2017, Oldham County 4-H’s dream to have its own camp week became a reality in 2018.
The Oldham County 4-H Council raised over $12,510 to help support camp expenses, roughly twice the amount of donations received in 2017.
The 319 attendees included nine participants who have grown up in the program, experiencing life as a camper, teen leader, and now as an adult leader. In addition, the state employed three Oldham County 4-H alumni in 2018 as paid camp interns.
