New Counselors must complete a minimum of 24 hours of counselor preparation training as recommended by the Ohio 4-H Program. Of this, 12 hours must be residential and 12 hours non-residential.
Returning Counselors must complete a minimum of 12 hours of counselor preparation training as recommended by the Ohio 4-H Program. These will be non-residential hours.
Residential training will be held at Camp Piedmont on May 28-29. New counselors need to attend this training unless prior arrangements have been made to attend an alternate training. Residential training is optional (but highly encouraged!) for returning counselors.
Any counselor not meeting required amounts of documented training prior to leaving for camp will not be permitted to serve as a counselor.
If you are unable to attend a meeting for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact Kiersten or Chris K. to find out what was missed, what needs to be made up, and if additional meetings were scheduled.
