Thank you for your patience and support as Georgia 4-H considered tentative plans to provide a delayed start and shortened camp season.  After much thought and concern for the health and safety of 4-H staff, volunteers, and our 4-H participants, Georgia 4-H has made the difficult decision to cancel camp for the 2020 summer season.   We are already looking forward to 2021, when we can continue “to make the best better.”


As Georgia 4-H makes TENTATIVE PLANS to provide a delayed start and shortened summer camp season in 2020, there is no higher priority than the health and safety of campers, teen and adult volunteer leaders, and staff members. Georgia 4-H will only proceed with plans to camp if it is deemed safe to do so according to guidance from the University of Georgia, CDC, and the State of Georgia.

4-H Summer Camp

Georgia 4-H summer camps provide an outdoor summer program unparalleled in the nation. Up to 1,200 campers will join us this summer at Fortson, one of five separate 4-H camps in Georgia, for a week of experiences that will be remembered for years to come. We look forward to a week full of adventure, friendship and fun. Enthusiastic and well-trained camp counselors, Cooperative Extension employees, and certified volunteers work together to provide campers with unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!

Booking Information

We book county 4-H clubs rather than individual children for 4-H Summer Camp.  You may still be able to get your child registered for 4-H camp through your local county 4-H club.

If you are interested in attending Georgia 4-H Summer Camp, please contact your County Extension office.
