Camp Teen Leader Application-Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, CDC and ACA guidelines, there are accommodations and changes currently being made to Maryland 4-H Camping Programs.   Please have patience, understanding, and flexibility, as our ultimate goal for 2021 is to have some type of camping program for our Howard County community. While this summer’s programs may look a bit different, the Maryland 4-H Camping Program is still committed to providing our youth with opportunities to feel a sense of belonging, develop independence, facilitate generosity, and work towards mastery.

Completing an application, submitting a resume, and interview is required as part of the selection process for a position.  If selected for a position with the 4-H camping program, please remember, it is mandatory that you complete 30 hours of training.   Training for both Teen and Adult staff will be offered virtually at this time, however is subject to change.  On February 13, 2021, the training schedule will be posted.

 If you should have any additional questions, please feel free to contact me Crein@umd.edu.

 Teen Leader Interviews will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2021 virtually.
