Georgia’s 4-H summer camping program, administered through the county offices of UGA Cooperative Extension, offers a 4-H summer camping experience unparalleled in the nation.

 

Over 8,000 children ages 9 and up, accompanied by over 1,000 adult and teen leaders, travel annually to Georgia’s unique 4-H centers for a week of camp that will be remembered and cherished for years to come. Every camp offers adventure, friendship and fun, and all seek to develop the camper’s Head, Heart, Hands and Health to make him or her a better person.

Georgia’s 4-H centers — Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island, Fortson 4-H Center (Hampton, GA), Rock Eagle 4-H Center (Eatonton, GA) and Wahsega 4-H Center (Dahlonega, GA) —  and Georgia 4-H at Camp Jekyll open their doors to campers looking for an exciting summer experience. Enthusiastic and well-trained camp counselors, University of Georgia Extension employees, and certified volunteers work together to provide campers with unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!

Please note that while the ages and grades given below for each camp may be used as a general guideline, you should check with your University of Georgia County Extension Office for their particular age or other eligibility requirements.

Cloverleaf Camp

Each county is assigned to a 4-H center for a specific week of Cloverleaf Camp. Most students attending Cloverleaf Camp have completed the fifth or sixth grade; however, at their discretion counties may choose to allow campers who have completed the third or fourth grade to attend Cloverleaf Camp. ALL Cloverleaf campers must be 9-years-old on or before their first day of camp. The table below lists where and when each county will attend Cloverleaf Camp in 2019 and contains active links to your County Extension office.

Students who have completed the seventh or eighth grade are given the opportunity to attend Junior Camp. Again, each county is assigned a particular week for Junior Camp (see the table below), which will be held at Camp Jekyll in 2019.

Other Camps

Other camping opportunities in the Georgia 4-H summer camping program in 2019 include two weeks of Marine Resources Camp at Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island, either July 8-12, or July 15-19, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh, or eighth grades.  Wilderness Challenge Camp at Wahsega 4-H Center, July 1-5, is for students who have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth grades (Wilderness Challenge campers must be 12-years-old on or before July 1, 2019).

High school students may attend Senior Camp at Rock Eagle 4-H Center, May 27-31; or, Senior EXTREME Camp, a more primitive camping experience at Fitch Pioneer Camp at Rock Eagle 4-H Center, June 10-14 (or both!).

If you are unable to attend the specific Cloverleaf or Junior camping week assigned to your county, you might consider Community Camp at Fortson 4-H Center, July 14-18 (campers must be 9-years-old by the first day of camp).

Georgia 4-H also partners with the Armed Services to help sponsor several unique Military Camp opportunities for children and youth in military families. Your county extension office (see the table below) can offer assistance in exploring these opportunities.
