The Camp Palmer staff and board are very thankful to Midwest Energy Cooperative for free installation of 16 telephone poles that will form the base of the new high ropes course course. Operation Round Up-Paulding Putnam Electric Trust also made a recent donation of $2,000 toward this project.
Also, the staff and board thanked Williams County Pork Producers for a $2,500 donation toward the new pool that has reduced the pool loan to $64,000.
This new pole high ropes course built in poles will replace 4-H Camp Palmer’s original high ropes course built in trees in 1990. Youth will be challenged to participant and experience up to 15 physical elements located 25 feet in the air including a zip wire. A unique feature of the new course will be a central spiral stairway access. This project will cost about $25,000.
4-H Camp Palmer is the largest 4-H youth camp in northwest Ohio serving 11 counties, 2,000 youth in summer resident camps and another 4,100 in outdoor education school programs, retreats, specialty camp and leadership/team work workshops through-out the year.
If you or your group would like to donate to this project, please call 419-237-2247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. 4-H Camp Palmer is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization.
