FAYETTE — The Camp Palmer staff and board are thankful to Midwest Energy Cooperative for free installation of 16 telephone poles that will form the base of the new high ropes course. The staff and board would like to recognize Operation Round Up-Paulding Putnam Electric Trust for a recent donation of $2,000 toward this project. Also, they would like to thank the Williams County Pork Producers for a $2,500 donation toward our new pool that has reduced our 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 participate 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 throughout the year.

If you or your group would like to donate to this project, please call 419-237-2247 or email 4hcamppalmer@gmail.com. 4-H Camp Palmer is a non-profit 501c3 organization.
