4-H Camp McCandless
Hello 4-H community,
The Monterey County 4-H Camp program, Camp McCandless, will be held at Camp MayMac in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This site features a full kitchen, swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, hiking trails and cabins and much more. This year’s dates are June 14th -19th, 2020.
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 8th at 4pm at the Monterey County 4-H office, 1432 Abbott St, Salinas. Interviews will be held Monday, November 18th 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, letters of recommendation and contract on the County website. Applications are due much sooner than in years past.
In addition, the process for being accepted as a teen counselor has additional parameters included in the application process. These take place before and during the camp program year. Please review these terms carefully before committing.
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 leadership for the future.
There are numerous ways that adults can be involved with our camp programming. 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.
