Georgia's 4-H summer camping program, administered through
the county offices of UGA Extension, offers a 4-H summer camping experience unparalleled in
the nation. Over 8,000 children ages 9-19, accompanied by over 1,000
adult and teen leaders, annually descend on each of Georgia's unique 4-H centers
for a week of camp that will be reflected upon and cherished for years to come.
Every camp offers great 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 4-H will not camp on Jekyll Island again in 2015 pending the reconstruction of the facility there, but Georgia's four other 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) -- will open their doors to campers looking for an exciting
summer experience. Enthusiastic and well-trained camp counselors,
Extension employees, and certified volunteers work together
to provide campers with unforgettable memories to last a lifetime!
IMPORTANT: While the ages and grades given below for
each camp may be used as a general guideline, you should check with
your County Extension Office for their particular age or other eligibility
Each county is assigned to a 4-H center
for a specific week of Cloverleaf Camp, for students
who have completed the fifth or sixth grade (many counties allow campers who have completed the fourth grade). The table below lists
where and when each county will attend Cloverleaf Camp in 2015 and
contains active links to your County Extension office and to each
4-H Center's camping website.
Students who have completed the seventh or eighth grade
are given the opportunity to attend Junior Camp.
Again, each county is assigned a particular week for Junior Camp
(see the table below), which will be held at Fortson 4-H Center this year.
Other camping opportunities in the Georgia 4-H summer
camping program in 2015 include Wilderness Challenge Camp at Wahsega 4-H Center,
July 6-10, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth
grades (Wilderness Challenge campers must be 12-years-old on or before July 6, 2015); and, Marine Resources Camp at Burton 4-H Center on Tybee Island, July 20-24, for students who have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth
High school students may attend Senior Camp at Fortson 4-H Center, June 29-July 3; or Senior EXTREME Camp, a more primitive camping experience at Rock Eagle 4-H Center, June 8-12 (or both!).
If you are unable to attend the specific Cloverleaf or Junior camping week
assigned to your county, you might consider Community Camp at Fortson 4-H Center, July 19-23 (campers must be 9-years-old by September 1, 2014, to attend Community Camp in 2015).
