Announcement

Thank you for your patience and support as Georgia 4-H continues to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of 4-H campers, staff, and volunteers remains our primary concern in planning and decision-making for the 2021 camping season.  Our current plans for the summer of 2021 are described on this page, but we ask for your continued understanding as adjustments to the 2021 camping schedule may become necessary.

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, travel annually to Georgia’s unique 4-H centers for a week of camp that will be remembered and cherished for years to come. Every camp offers 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) —  and Georgia 4-H at Camp Jekyll open their doors to campers looking for an exciting summer experience. Enthusiastic and well-trained camp counselors, University of Georgia Extension employees, and certified volunteers work together to provide campers with unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!

Please note that while the ages and grades given below for each camp may be used as a general guideline, you should check with your University of Georgia 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 2021 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 week for Junior Camp (see the table below), which will be held at Camp Jekyll in 2021.

Other Camps

Other camping opportunities in the Georgia 4-H summer camping program in 2021 include two weeks of Marine Resources Camp at Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island, either July 5-9, or July 12-16, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh, or eighth grades.  Wilderness Challenge Camp at Wahsega 4-H Center, June 28-July 2, is also for students who have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth grades.

High school students will pick from two or three opportunities to attend Senior Camp in 2021 (or try them all!):  Senior EXTREME Camp, a more primitive camping experience, will be held at Fitch Pioneer Camp at Rock Eagle 4-H Center, June 14-18.  One or two other weeks of Senior Camp are being planned, but changes in the 4-H calendar have necessitated a date change, which we will announce on December 3, 2020.

Registration

Georgia 4-H summer camp registration is administered by the UGA Extension office in each county.  For more information on camping opportunities or to register for camp, call your county’s  Cooperative Extension office and ask for the 4-H agent or staff.
