Greetings From 4-H Camp Bob Marshall Teen Camp!

We are excited to have you joining us at the 4-H Camp Bob Marshall Teen Camp this summer! Here is your one stop shop for Camp Bob Marshall Teen Camp information. Please read over the following information so that you know what’s going on.

Camp Overview

Teen Camp Bob “Space is the Place” will be a great time of learning how to be our next generation of leaders. During camp, we will learn about space exploration, STEM, and personal growth. A variety of activities will include camping experience. All campers will go on an off-camp adventure, will “rocket” during a dance, and enjoy the camp; canoeing, fishing, swimming, campfires, s’mores and songs.

What parents should know:

  • Age & Attendance
    4-H camp is open to all youth ages 13-18 by camp deadline. You do not have to be a 4-H member to attend. Invite a friend!
  • Food Allergies
    This camp is NOT a nut free camp due to ingredients used and camp store. Food allergies need to be called in by June 1 to the Head Cook.
  • Chaperones
    Every county must provide one chaperone for every 12 kids of each gender attending camp. Camp Registration forms will not be accepted without adequate supervision lined up! Chaperones must have the 4-H State Volunteer form on file with the State 4-H Office before attending camp.
