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.”



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.

Not certain which camp you’re headed off to?  Visit 4-H Camp Dates with Counties for more information.
