Doddridge County 4-H Camp.......................................June 14-19, 2015

Registration will begin Monday, May 4 at 12:01 a.m. with our new on-line registration and payment system! We encourage you to try it out. We are sending out a short informational mailing on May 1st to enrolled 4-H members. Please call the office if you need a paper registration packet.

Camp fee is $100, with an early bird 50% discount if you register before May 15. You will have a choice of payment options at the end of the on-line registration (on-line or pay at the door). There is a built in discount for families with three or more campers. Campers who received a return scholarship from last year’s camp will have a “promo code” on your letter which will create a $-0- balance due. You will need to enter the “promo code” exactly as it is typed on your letter, and must register before May 15 to receive the full return scholarship. Some clubs have been assigned a “promo code” for their club scholarship. That will be on your letter if applicable and must be entered exactly in the appropriate field. If you need financial assistance, please contact the office.

Last day to register for camp is June 5.
