4-H Camp McCandless
Hello 4-H community,
The Monterey County 4-H Camp- Camp McCandless will be held at Camp MayMac which features a full kitchen, swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, hiking trails and cabins and much more. This year’s dates are June 17th-22nd 2018.
Camp Counselors and Camp Teen Staff applications are now available on the 4-H Monterey County website and must be filled out and returned by November 17th at 4pm at the Monterey County 4-H office, 1432 Abbott St, Salinas. Interviews will be held Monday, November 27th beginning at 6:00 PM, 1230 Luther Way, Our Savior Lutheran Church in Salinas.
There are two opportunities for teens to apply for – Teen Counselor and Teen Camp Staff . Please see the application and job descriptions on the County website. Applications are due much sooner than in year past.
In addition to teens, the Camp Committee is reaching out to increase the camp committee participation with our volunteer staff. This need is essential and vital to ensure a sustainable adult camp team and new leadership for the future. As directors, our own youth will soon be moving out of 4-H and leaving our camp program too
There are numerous ways that adults can be involved with our camp programing. The 4-H Camp Committee will hold monthly meetings at the same time as the Teen Counselor trainings. There is a separate room where adult planning take place to improve the quality of the local camp program, finding funding resources, provide administrative support to the directors, develop emergency plans, provide medical support, develop camp related activities and update camp wear. A number of positions are needed to be filled with mentoring/shadowing opportunities as well
Our team welcomes your ideas and continued support of the Monterey County 4-H summer camp.
