Because of Camp from the perspective of a few famous people!


Ohio 4-H Special Needs Camp

Camp is designed with individual youth in mind and is tailored to their needs.  It gives youth a chance to try new things in a safe environment while building relationships.  When campers and caregivers were asked about the Camp in the past, 100% of those surveyed stated that they want to return next year and one caregiver stated, “Everyone helps all the kids have a great time.  No one is left out.”  Campers feel the same way – one Camper listed their favorite memory as, “Seeing all of the kids, staff, counselors & parents.”

If you would like more information about attending, or supporting, Special Needs Camp at Canter’s Cave 4-H Camp, please contact Michelle Stumbo, Camp Program Director, at 740-992-6696 or -
