*NOTICE* 2020 Grays Harbor County 4-H Camping Programs Are Suspended

Grays Harbor County 4-H has made the difficult decision to suspend 4-H camping programs for 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. This includes the Grays Harbor County 4-H Summer Camp previously scheduled for summer 2020 at Panhandle Lake Camp. While this was a difficult decision to make, the health, safety, and wellness of our campers and camp staff is our top priority. We look forward to offering outstanding camping programs summer 2021 and hope to see you next year! In the meantime we are working on alternative activities for youth and families and will update this page with additional information as it becomes available.
