4-H Camp McCandless
2017 Camp Counselor and Teen Camp Staff applications are now open!
Hello 4-H community,
Happy New Year! 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 18th-23rd, 2017.
An informational meeting for all interested to be youth or adult volunteers will be held Monday, January 23rd, at 6:00 pm, 1230 Luther Way, Our Savior Lutheran Church.
NEW! A Teen Camp Staff position is being introduced as another teen leadership opportunity. It will reduce the amount of daily work for Teen Camp counselors and support the Camp Directors. It is open to teens ages 14-19. A limited number of spots will be available. Please see the application and job description on the County website.
All applications are now available on the 4-H Monterey County website and must be filled out and returned by February 2nd at 4pm at the Monterey County 4-H office, 1432 Abbott St, Salinas. Interviews will be held Monday, February 6th beginning at 6:00 PM, 1230 Luther Way, Our Savior Lutheran Church in Salinas.
We are in a “growing year” and are 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. Personally, faced with some health challenges and like many of our adult staff, 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. Please join us for the planning meeting on the date and location listed above.
