4-H summer camp is a once-in-a-lifetime experience
Placeholder Image

With one of the largest and most respected 4-H camping programs in the country, Georgia 4-H camps provide positive experiences that can impact a student's life.

This summer, students have an opportunity to spend a week at Rock Eagle 4-H Center in Eatonton where they will play sports and games, learn dances, do crafts and take environmental education, nutrition and outdoor recreation classes.

This year's camp begins on June 19 and runs through June 23. The 4-H Summer Cloverleaf Camp is open to all fourth, fifth and sixth grade 4-H'ers in Dawson County.

There is currently plenty of space available and a non-refundable deposit of $100 is due by May 1.

The camp experience gives 4-H'ers the chance to learn important life skills like keeping their cabin and campground tidy, being prompt for activities and taking care of their own belongings.

Collegiate 4-H counselors are positive, well-trained influences and will help campers as they learn to become more independent and grow in self-confidence and maturity.

Dawson County Extension staff ensures they will take good care of campers as well as bring them back full of new experiences and friends.

The total cost of the camp is $330.

4-H is the youth development program of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.
