As we all work through the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing is certain–the cost of Licking County 4-H Camp in 2020 will remain the same as 2019. At its March 13, 2020 board meeting, the Licking County Farm Bureau Board of Trustees voted to provide the financial means necessary to insure that the cost of Licking County 4-H Camp will be reduced by $30 for every camper and Farm Bureau members will save an additional $50 for each camper.
“In this time of uncertainty, the board felt that they could provide a small relief for families who may be questioning upcoming expenses,” said Kayla Jones, organization director for Ohio Farm Bureau.
With the requirement to postpone the Farmers Share Breakfast, the donations that typically come in at that event to help offset the cost of camp are unknown. The board wanted to provide a way to guarantee the cost of camp in spite of the recent health challenges.
The Farmers Share Breakfast was rescheduled to May 16 from 7:30 a.m. to 10 a.m. at C-TEC, 150 Price Road, Newark. Volunteers can sign up here.
