4-H Camps

Update from the 4-H Camping Committee

(as of April 24, 2020)

All overnight camps through July 4, 2020 are cancelled.

On a more positive note, we have formed a committee to explore the concept of virtual camps. Please be on the lookout for more information as these efforts progress.

Additionally, we have a sub-committee working to update the 4-H Camp Safety Guidebook. These updates will enhance procedures related to COVID-19 and other communicable diseases. Given the new landscape, we anticipate that these updates will offer a higher degree of preparedness for camps in the future.

Please see our FAQs for guidance regarding camps after July 4, 2020.

4-H camps are county-based programs that foster healthy living in the outdoors. Participating in camp programs help youth build self confidence, meet new people, and experience new opportunities. Please see our list of camps below.
