EXTENSION CONNECTION: 4-H summer camp at Camp Timpoochee

Published: Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 04:34 PM.
Every summer, when kids get out of school and it is time to find something fun to do, why not come to 4-H Camp Timpoochee.

4-H Camp offers line dancing, marine science activities, kayaking, snorkeling, arts and crafts, GPS and campfire games, archery and team building opportunities throughout one week at the Okaloosa County site.   

A week at Camp Timpoochee is a lifetime of memories, friendships and life skills — and a great week of fun.

 I attended Camp Timpoochee as a camper, counselor-in-training, counselor, staff member and adult volunteer. I came home each summer with new camp songs added to my repertoire, new friends and tons of fun games and ideas to share with others.

Nothing can describe the wonderful experience a child gets the first time he or she goes off to camp and experiences it for the first time. My camp memories are still very fresh and I always smile when I think back on all the great times I had. 

You do not have to be a 4-H member to attend with us, but maybe if you go and experience what camp and 4-H have to offer, you might think about joining one of our clubs. 

Have the experience of a lifetime! 

If you have any questions about the 4-H program, clubs or camps, call the Okaloosa County Extension office at 689-5850. 

Let us answer your questions and provide you with information to get started in a great life experience with 4-H. 

We have camp packets available and ready. There is a limited amount of spots, so visit http://okaloosa.ifas.ufl.edu/4hy/ to print a packet or stop by our office at 3098 Airport Road, Crestview, to pick one up.
