2017 Georgia 4-H Summer Camp Dates

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, annually descend on each of Georgia's unique 4-H centers for a week of camp that will be reflected upon and cherished for years to come. Every camp offers great 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) -- will open their doors to campers looking for an exciting summer experience. Enthusiastic and well-trained camp counselors, Extension employees, and certified volunteers work together to provide campers with unforgettable memories to last a lifetime! And, after a three-year absence, Georgia's 4-H campers will return to Jekyll Island in 2017 to enjoy these same great summer camping experiences at the newly-constructed Camp Jekyll.

IMPORTANT: While the ages and grades given below for each camp may be used as a general guideline, you should check with your 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 2017 and contains active links to your County Extension office.

Junior Camp

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 this year.

Other Camps

Other camping opportunities in the Georgia 4-H summer camping program in 2017 include Marine Resources Camp at Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island, July 3-7, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh, or eighth grades; or Wilderness Challenge Camp at Wahsega 4-H Center, July 17-21, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth grades (Wilderness Challenge campers must be 12-years-old on or before July 17, 2017).

High school students may attend Senior Camp at Rock Eagle 4-H Center, May 29-June 2; or, Senior EXTREME Camp, a more primitive camping experience at Rock Eagle 4-H Center, June 12-16 (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 16-20 (campers must be 9-years-old by September 1, 2016, to attend Community Camp in 2017).

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