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 9-19, accompanied by over 1,000
adult and teen leaders, annually descend on five unique 4-H centers
for a week of camp that will be reflected upon 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 five 4-H centers -- Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island, Fortson 4-H Center (Hampton, GA), Jekyll Island 4-H Center, Rock Eagle 4-H Center(Eatonton, GA) and Wahsega 4-H Center (Dahlonega, GA) -- 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!
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
Each county is assigned to one of the five 4-H centers
for a specific week of Cloverleaf Camp, for students
who have completed the fifth or sixth grade (many counties allow campers who have completed the fourth grade). The table below lists
where and when each county will attend Cloverleaf Camp in 2013 and
contains active links to your County Extension office and to each
4-H Center's camping website.
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 Fortson 4-H Center this year.
Other camping opportunities in the Georgia 4-H summer
camping program in 2013 include Marine Resources Camp at Jekyll Island 4-H Center,
July 8-12, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth
grades, or Senior Camp, also at Jekyll Island 4-H Center, July 1-5, for high school students.
If you are unable to attend the specific camping week
assigned to your county, you might consider Community
Camp at Fortson 4-H Center.
New for Senior 4-H’ers, it’s Senior Extreme Camp June 10 – 14, 2013 at Frank Fitch Pioneer Camp at Rock Eagle 4-H Center.
