Why Send a Child to 4-H Camp?
4-H CAMP BUILDS AFFINITY FOR NATURE
Far from the digital screens at home, 4-H campers are fully immersed in the natural world. Time spent in nature helps young people manage stress, improve concentration, and increases self-esteem.
4-H CAMP PROMOTES PHYSICAL HEALTH
Combined with activities like swimming, canoeing, horseback riding, hiking, and more, youth learn how to enjoy physical activity.
4-H CAMP TEACHES INDEPENDENCE
Children are encouraged to push their boundaries, step out of their comfort zones, and grow the self-confidence necessary to become independent.
4-H CAMP CULTIVATES A SENSE OF BELONGING
4-H camp gives young people the opportunity to be themselves while appreciating others with values, attitudes, and abilities different from their own.
4-H CAMP TEACHES RESPONSIBILITY
For many, 4-H camp is a first experience cleaning a cabin or setting a table. It may also be the first time campers work with others to overcome challenges.
