Camp Information and Registration

Dunn, Clark & Eau Claire County 4-H Summer Camp Dates: June 6-9, 2024

Registration: Feb. 20 – April 28 via 4-H Online

Come and join us for Base and Outpost camp! Base camp will be hosted at Kamp Kenwood for grades 3-6. Outpost camp will be located at Lake Wissota Campground for grades 7-9. We will be partnering up with Eau Claire and Clark County again. Both camps will be from June 6-9, 2024. Youth that are in 9th-13th grade can sign up as camp counselors.

Grades 3-6  Base Camp at Kamp Kenwood
So, what’s going on during this Base Camp? The cook will be Melissa H. the owner of Fannies Supper Club. So, we will once again have really tasty food! The activities at camp might include things canoeing, kayaking, painting, sculpting, tie dying, baking, playing big base and volleyball explosion and much, much more. The Dunn County Leaders council will once again be sponsoring ALL Dunn County 4-H Youth!

If you are signing up your youth for camp, please refer to 4-H online. The title for camp is “Eau Claire-Dunn-Clark Summer Camp”.

Grades 7-9 Outpost Camp at Lake Wissota

What’s Outpost Camp all about? Outpost camp will be located at Lake Wissota Campground, and we have a group camp site reserved. During this camp, campers and volunteers will be sleeping overnight in tents and eating food prepared by the campfire (Some meals will be provided and consumed at Kamp Kenwood as well). Activities might include participating in an all-day canoeing trip along Lake Wissota, hiking around the several hundred acres of Lake Wissota State Park, learning how to use a compass, identifying tracks and scat and much more. The Dunn County Leaders council will once again be sponsoring ALL Dunn County 4-H Youth!

Chaperone Interest Form (Due May 12) 
We are looking for chaperones! (Camp Chaperones are the best!) To make camp happen we need a 1:10 adult to youth ratio. We are looking for 8 additional volunteers for base camp and 5 for outpost camp. Without enough adults to help supervise, camp can’t happen.

Camp Chaperones can be used in a variety of ways and for different lengths of time.  Please use this form to let us know your interest level in volunteering.  This form does not commit you to volunteering – it will only be used to let the Educators know who might be interested.  Your county 4-H Educator will reach out to you with more information.

Camp Dates: June 6-9

Base Camp- Sleeping in Cabins

Outpost Camp- Sleeping in Tents (Talk to us if you want to bring a camper that could also be used as the nurses station)

Parliamentary Procedure

UW-Extension’s Local Government Center recently produced a series of brief videos that offer guidance on four critical and sometimes confusing topics related to parliamentary procedure including:

Posted on the Center’s YouTube page, these videos are not intended to be of high production value, but were developed in-house using a basic video camera. They feature Dan Hill (recently retired Local Government Specialist) and Larry Larmer (Local Government Center Outreach Specialist), experienced experts in teaching and practicing parliamentary procedure in Wisconsin as well as other Center Specialists and support staff serving as actors. Each video highlights the issue, offers background on why the issue may present itself and demonstrates the proper ways to address that issue within the context of a formal meeting. These videos were developed by the Local Government Center’s three partner organizations including the Wisconsin Counties Association, the League of Wisconsin Municipalities and the Wisconsin Towns Association to have something brief that could be shared with boards, councils or organizational leadership during a typical meeting of the body.

Videos range in duration from 4-6 minutes.
