ANNOUNCEMENT

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.”

Georgia 4-H at Camp Jekyll Summer Camp

 

Camp Jekyll plays host to one of the many UGA Extension 4-H Summer Camps. Other camp locations include: Burton 4-H CenterWahsega 4-H Center,Rock Eagle 4-H Center, and Fortson 4-H Center. 4-H Camp on Jekyll Island is a week-long experience that includes visits to the beach and many other fun and exciting activities. 4-H Camp is a memorable and rewarding experience. Cooperation and character building, along with just having a great time, are all part of the camping adventure.

Each Georgia county is assigned to a 4-H center for a specific week of Summer Camp. Camp registration is not handled through the center but through your local County Extension Office. The Georgia 4-H Camping Website contains a helpful chart listing where and when each county will attend Georgia 4-H Summer Camp and contains active links to your County Extension office to call to sign up!
