Older youth age 14 to 18 who plan to serve as camp counselors are invited to Making eXtreme Counselors (MXC)--an interactive and quick-paced training that offers innovative camp ideas to new and veteran camp counselors. MXC participants will leave with skills that will enable them to assist in their county's camp program planning and delivery, and prepare them to deliver a great camp program to their campers.
MXC is a national award-winning workshop that will be useful for all potential camp counselors. Don't miss your chance to participate—the event will be offered once in 2015, during the weekend of February 21-22. MXC will be held at the Nationwide & Ohio Farm Bureau 4-H Center on the campus of The Ohio State University. Counselors will earn camp counselor training hours while attending this event (number of hours is determined by county). All participants will receive a take-home kit of supplies. They also will be able to share and gain ideas with teens from other counties all across the state. County Extension Professionals and Camp Directors are NOT required to attend with their counselors. Agenda and registration materials will be posted on this page as they become available.
In 2015, MXC participants can attend sessions about the topics:
- Songs- How to Lead singing, New Songs
- Dances- Line, Circle, Mixer
- Games- Icebrakers, Games with no supplies
- And much, much more!!!
Participant Registration Worksheet is to be completed and turned in to your County Extension Office by January 28th, 2015.
