The camp began as a residential camping facility in the summer of 1948. First launched as a 4-H summer camp, many other groups have used the facility. It currently serves as the site for 4-H camping for eight Ohio counties and one West Virginia county. It offers a wonderful outdoor facility of about 20 acres with access to Piedmont Lake and MWCD public land. A wide variety of uses and activities can be accomodated at Camp Piedmont.

2019 Tuscarawas County 4-H Camp
Check In: June 16, 3 PM
Dismissal: June 19, 10 AM
Registration Deadline: May 17 OR when camp limit is met
Join your friends this summer at 4-H Camp! All age groups camp at the same time, but camp programming is designed for age appropriate activities. Specific details regarding camp is distributed upon paid registration.
Campers will be assigned to age defined cabins with their cabin mate request if possible. Each cabin is led by trained teen counselors. Camp activities will run on similar schedules - sharing meal times and some programs. There’s plenty of fun for everyone!
- And many more!
4-H camp provides opportunities for campers to:
- Have recreational and educational experiences in outdoor living away from home.
- Meet and learn to get along with other young people by being in group settings.
- Learn to take responsibility for their decisions and actions.
- Explore new interests or new angles of old interests—such as nature, music, and waterfront activities—that cannot be explored as well through local clubs.
- Discover and develop leadership abilities, as well as intelligent “followership” skills.
4-H Camp is conducted by an adult staff of Extension personnel, a nurse, and 4-H volunteers.
Thanks to the continued support from the Clover Café profits, campers are not required to pay the full cost of camp fees, which would be significantly higher. Paid registrations are due no later than May 17. No camp refunds after June 3.

Adopt-A-Cabin Refurbishment Campaign
Our county successfully raised our first $5000 to refurbish our adoped cabin, Hemlock (on the girls side of camp)!
4-H Camp Piedmont Board's goal is to have all 14 cabins refurbished and adopted by all 8 counties who attend camp. Contractors will be doing work under the leadership of the Maintenance Manager, John Gardner. The cost to refurbish a single cabin is $5,000. Refurbishment includes:
- New roof, walls, floors, ceilings, bunks, and doors.
- New lighting and windows installed.
The Tuscarawas County 4-H Committee’s next goal is to raise and donate $5,000 for a cabin on the boys side of camp. The committee is encouraging 4-H clubs to participate by making donations to the Cabin Campaign. The Tuscarawas County 4-H Committee will donate all Cabin Campaign funds to Camp Piedmont to complete our cabin refurbishment. If funds collected exceed $5,000, the remaining funds will be used to help fund another cabin. Funds will be taken all year to help with the campaign.
This can be counted as Community Service for those clubs making a donation. Clubs can be creative in terms of fundraising: they may make a contribution from their club treasury, hold a fundraiser with proceeds dedicated to the Cabin Campaign, collect donations, etc.
For more information or to print a form to make a donation, see the Adopt-A-Cabin Refurbishment Campaign form.
