4-H Overnight Camp
Interested in attending 4-H Overnight Camp? Want to know why you should choose 4-H Overnight Camp for the summer? For more than 80 years, North Carolina 4-H camping has taught youth life skills through centers located from the mountains to the sandhills to the coast. Each year, more than 4,000 campers from across the state participate in 4-H camping programs at North Carolina’s 4-H educational centers. Sponsoring a youth to attend 4-H Camp will provide a safe, secure, and healthy environment to explore life-long adventures. The mission of the 4-H camping program is to use natural and social environments to provide learning experiences that are age-appropriate.
The 4-H camp also provides young people an opportunity to develop life skills in a safe and fun-filled setting with qualified and nurturing camp staff. All 4-H residential camps are accredited by the American Camp Association. The hands-on learning experiences they will participate in are canoeing, archery, swimming, horseback riding, ropes/ challenge course, and recreational activities. These life skills will expand their confidence levels in teamwork, communication, self-esteem, and self-reliance. This summer, Forsyth County 4-H will be taking a group of youth ages 8-14 to Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational in Center in Reidsville, NC the week of June 26- July 1, 2022. The cost for camp attendance is $500.00 per child if paid in cash or check, which covers boarding, food, staff, and activities for the week. We can accept credit cards, but there is an additional fee for that service. Register in 4-H Online. Under your family profile, there should be three events listed. You may select events you would like for your youth to participate in.
