Some of the activities we expect to be included in this year’s Wilderness Challenge Camp (tentative):

  • Zip line canopy tour
  • Classes at Wahsega especially developed for Wilderness Challenge Camp
  • Night recreation with dancing and outdoor sports
  • Crazy fun teambuilding challenges at Camp Wahsega
  • Hiking in the North Georgia mountains
  • and much more


All participants, adults and campers, must complete the waiver forms from Raft One for rafting and Unicoi for ziplining. Raft One requires everyone to be at least 12 years old.  Unicoi requires participants to be at least 50 lbs for the level 1 course that we are doing.


Please make sure that a parent or guardian has signed their child’s form before they leave for camp.

If a parent or another person will be picking up their child on Friday they MUST turn in the Transportation Form by the first day of camp.  When parents come to pick up their child, they will stay in their car and a staff member will bring their child to them.

Who should participate?

Campers must have a positive attitude and must be ready to participate and jump in with both feet. No backing out and no homesickness allowed! Wilderness Challenge Camp is open to 4-H’ers in 7th and 8th grade along with 6th graders who will be twelve by the first day of Wilderness Challenge Camp.  If you know someone interested in attending Wilderness Challenge Camp, please share this opportunity.


For reservations, call your county’s Cooperative Extension office and ask for the person responsible for 4-H camp. You can find contact information for each county online at: http://extension.uga.edu/about/county/index.cfm
