Program Design & Activities
Camp- Program Design
When designing a quality 4-H camp experience, most people think of the activities that happen at camp. However, activities are only one aspect of camp program design. Program is about everything that happens at camp: sleeping arrangements, doing chores, traditions, and scheduling. It is also about how things are done at camp: whether days are pre-scheduled, age-appropriate, camper or staff designed, youth or adult led. How the camp program is designed will produce different outcomes for campers and staff.
