All though ages 13-18 years of age serve as teen leaders.

Registration through camp will be available starting today and going through May 27th. Registration will be done by the form below and submitted to the County Extension Office. Please make checks out to Bell 4-H.

When registering, you will notice that you will have to pay $115 per participant and $75 per chaperone. We will pay for the first chaperones registered and needed (1 per 8 youth per gender) then other remaining chaperones will have to pay the full amount. This payment will be reimbursed to the chaperones. Chaperones are based on a 1 to 8 ratio per gender and very few times have we not paid for registrations due to lack of chaperones.
