4-H Camp McCandless
Dear 4-H families,
The Monterey County 4-H camp applications are now closed.
Known as Camp McCandless, this has been a tradition for 4-Hers for years. Now held at the Camp Maymac location in the Santa Cruz Mountains, this 5 day summer camp is filled with 4-H fun.
A full payment of $300 is expected along with a signed medical release form within one week of completing the online application or the application will be moved to the bottom of the list. This payment is to be sent to: 4-H program, 1432 Abbott ST, Salinas, CA 93901. Or, we can accept full payments at the counter. (checks are to be made out to: "Monterey County 4-H Camp")
This Camp Program is only partially supported by the 4-H Council and, the camp committee has to invest in the location upfront. We are operating on very little funds. Please consider helping us find company donations to offset costs. See our donation letter on the 4-H camp page. We encourage clubs to provide scholarship money to help campers or counselors offset their fees.
The Camp McCandless committee meets every month as listed on the Monterey County 4-H website and we invite all parents or certified adult volunteers in the 4-H program to come and work towards finding long term funding and ways to build our adult volunteer support team and other camp programming ideas. Together we can continue to build a strong youth camping program and find the financial support we need.
If this is your camper’s first year, we are working with our teen counselors each month to prepare them for their role as leader. We will be holding a Camp Information night on Monday, March 19th, 2018. Meeting will be at 6pm and take place at the 4-H offices in Salinas. . We welcome your volunteer experience and efforts to help prepare our teens to be role models 24/7 for 5 nights and 6 days by joining the camp committee.
