LAPEER TWP. — Registration for Lapeer County 4-H Summer Camp 2017 have begun, but it’s not too late to get in on the fun and be an important part of this amazing opportunity.

Organizers still need camp counselors or adult chaperones. Teens age 15 and older and young adults who enjoy working with kids, love the outdoors and thinking of a career with youth, this is a fantastic opportunity. Organizers are looking for persons who can be part of the camp staff for kids ages 8-12 at the overnight camp to be held July 12-15 at Camp Lael.

Although the role of camp counselor is a volunteer role, it is great for community service, job resumes, and leadership opportunities. For more information, contact Jean Kreiner at the Michigan State University Extension Office at 810-667- 0343.
