Camp designed for handicapped youth
For the first time in Ohio, a 4-H camp is being offered for multiple handicapped youth ages 8 to 18, from the evening of June 8 to the morning of June 10.
The first 25 youths to register for the “I Think I Can, I Think I Can” camp will stay in the lodge at Canter's Cave 4-H Camp in Jackson County and enjoy swimming, arts and crafts, and nature activities along with an adult companion attending with them.
Registration for the camp is due May 26; the fee of $45 is waived for the youth's adult companion.
The camp is possible from a grant from the Ohio 4-H Foundation. In addition, a $9,000 donation from the Shriners has started a fund to build a cabin specifically for youths with disabilities.
