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’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 2020 and contains active links to your County Extension office.
