4-H Camp McCandless
Camper applications will open in the Spring, 2019
Camp Director application for 2020
January 6th, 2019
Dear Monterey County 4-H families and volunteers,
With the New Year marks the beginning of our committee planning process for our annual 4-H Camp McCandless 2019. Our first camp committee planning meeting will take place on Monday, January 28th at 6:00pm at 1230 Luther Way, Our Savior Lutheran Church in Salinas.
This year marks the need to revitalize our Camp Planning Committee with more and new(er) volunteers. For the Burgess family, June 2019 marks the graduation of our daughter Alex. We were honored to be accepted the role of Monterey County Camp Directors for the last eight years. However, we will “retire” from this position after the 2019 camp. Our long time Co-director Rod Ichikawa will stay on.
The Camp Director is a volunteer position that is applied for and accepted through the 4-H office with input from the Camp Committee. The complete volunteer job description can be found on the Monterey County 4-H website.
Interested adults are encouraged to apply now through March 2019. The new director(s) will assume responsibility for the planning and implementation of the 2020 camp, and will be expected to participate in the remaining 2019 camp planning meetings, as well as attend camp, full time, in 2019. The position could be shared by two people.
There are a variety of other camp adult volunteer positions that should support new Camp Directors. These include:
Camp Adult Volunteer Coordinator
Camp Enrollment Coordinator
Camp supplies, inventory & purchasing
Marketing and fundraising (tee shirts)
Medical and Emergency Response Team
We welcome your volunteer participation and continued support of the Monterey County 4-H summer camp. Please share the Camp Director position widely in and outside of your 4-H club to help us find a suitable candidate(s). Please consider any of the other support positions listed above as well.
We believe we have found a forever home for 4-H camp at Camp MayMac, located near Scotts Valley. This camp features a full kitchen, swimming pool, basketball and volleyball courts, hiking trails and cabins and much more. This year’s contracts are already in place as well as the teen counselors who have been selected to take on their leadership role in running camp.
