Get Creative! Camp T-Shirt Design Contest
Would you like to see your original design being worn by over 200 smiling campers? The N.E.W. 4-H Camp Team (Counties of Door, Kewaunee, Marinette, Oconto & Brown) is looking for their 2017 4-H summer camp t-shirt design. The contest is open to 4-H members grades K-13, campers and camp youth staff.
The design should:
- Include the 4-H clover
- Relate to a camping theme
- Be your original artwork (no photos)
- Be able to be reproduced on a t-shirt (in black & white on colored shirt)
- Be 8 ½ X 11 inches
- Include your name, county, age, phone number and e-mail on the back of your design
The winning youth artist will have his or her artwork displayed on the 2017 camp t-shirt and will receive their choice of $25.00 off of their camp registration or a $25.00 gift certificate for the 4-H Mall. All other entries will be put into a random drawing and one person will receive their choice of $25.00 off their camp registration or $25.00 gift certificate from the 4-H Mall book. Please note that your design will become the property of the N.E.W. Camp Team and will be subject to editing & change at their discretion.
Please submit your design to the Kewaunee UW-Extension Office by April 1, 2017.
Camp Bird Counselor and Dishwasher Applications
Applications are now available for Camp Bird dishwashers, cabin counselors, and resource counselors.
Cabin counselors are responsible for the youth during day and night, while resource counselors help teach certain topics to the youth during the day and assist with evening programs at night. Junior Directors work with the Camp Directors and the counselors to help camp run as smooth as possible.
Dishwashers must be 14 years old by June 1, 2017 and counselors must be 16 years old by June 1, 2017. Individuals that are selected for this year’s camp are expected to attend all dishwasher/counselor trainings. Please return applications by February 1, 2017. To receive an application, please contact the UW-Extension office at (920) 388-7135.
Camp Volunteers Needed
We are looking for adult volunteers to help at summer camp. As a volunteer you will have an opportunity to help make the summer camp program a success.
The camp is nestled in a beautiful wooded area with a lake. Camp Bird is a residential type camp with modern bathrooms, cabin sleeping facilities, a dining hall, recreation building, arts and crafts center, a nature building, and much more.
There is no cost to volunteers. However, all volunteers that have not been through 4-H adult leader orientation will need to attend that training and have a background check completed.
To receive an application, please contact the UW-Extension office at (920) 388-7135.
