    Michael Schweinsberg, 4-H Educator

    Summer Ball Leagues Taking campers out of camp for a ballgame has proven to be very disruptive for both the camper and the overall camp program.

    Therefore, effective as of 2003, campers will not be permitted to leave camp for any type of sport activity.

    REGISTRATION Check In Time:

    Sunday, July 9th 3:00 4:30 pm Go to the Recreation Hall Bring any needed medications Review health form with camp nurse Deposit camper money in camp bank

    Please do not arrive before 3:00 pm or after 4:15 pm. When arriving, park your car in the parking lot before you enter the main gate. You will be carrying your things to the cabin. Counselors will be available to help with luggage. At registration, each camper will be given a nametag, cabin number and group assignment.

    Families are invited to stay with campers until 4:30 pm at which time, we ask that all parents and guests leave. There will be an open swim during registration for campers and guests.

    Check Out Time: Thursday, July 13th 10:30 am-11:00 am

    Check in at the table near the covered bridge. After confirming release information, you

    will be provided a ticket for all the campers you are responsible for picking up.

    Campers will only be released to the person indicated on their registration form.

    Proof of ID may be requested. All campers must be checked out with

    their cabin counselor in person with a ticket.

    Campers will be dismissed only when their ticket has been signed and cabin area has passed inspection and at the conclusion of the closing program.

    Parents are asked to please adhere to the check out time. End of camp programming is interrupted when parents arrive too early; however, all Paulding county campers should be off camp property by 11:15am out of respect for the next arriving camp.

    4-H Camp Schedule Please review the camp schedule that is enclosed in the packet. Please bring your schedule to camp with you. Note that there will be a dress up dinner on the last night. Campers are invited to come dressed up or in fresh clean nice clothes.

  • HEALTH CARE A qualified camp nurse/E.M.T. will be available at all times and if, at any time

    treatment is needed, the child can be taken to a nearby hospital. Please bring only prescription medication to camp. The nurse will distribute other forms of medication indicated on the health form.


    There will be a Bank system during

    camp for each camper to keep his or her money. It is not mandatory, but we HIGHLY RECOMMEND campers to deposit their money in the bank during check-in time. The bank will be open daily to access money when needed. It is not advisable for campers to bring an excessive amount of money to camp. Camp Palmer t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc. will only be available during check-in and check-out times. During camp itself, there will be a concession stand open on a limited basis. (We recommend that you write your childs name in any camp shirts purchased at the beginning of camp.) Please refer to enclosed list of possible camp store items and prices.


    CABINS Parents, please realize bunk beds are used at camp. Campers may select a bunk on a first come first serve basis. If a bottom bunk is desired, early arrival is necessary to guarantee a bunk of your choice. Top bunks do have guardrails for added protection.
