2018 Summer State 4-H Camp!!

— Written By and last updated by

Camden County 4-H has a wonderful opportunity for six youth between the ages of 8 and 12 this summer! County Extension staff have organized and will accompany youth to the Eastern 4-H Center in Columbia, NC during the week of June 24-29.

Campers will get the opportunity to try canoeing, archery, swimming, and more! Sleep-away camp is the perfect place for your children to become more independent and confident in themselves. In just one short week, you will notice a difference in your child and they will make tons of memories to last a lifetime!

Campers sleep in modern cabins with multiple indoor showers and restroom facilities. Each cabin houses up to 22 participants with at least two counselors available to provide constant, safe supervision. Campers bring their own sleeping bags or bed linens, as well as clothing and toiletries. The Eastern 4-H Center provides all the specialized equipment for camp activities. Nutritious, balanced meals are served family-style, three times a day. Snacks and juice are served mid-mornings and evenings. The camp store is also open in the afternoons for ice cream, soft drinks, snacks and souvenirs. We guarantee your child will have an unforgettable experience!

A $50 deposit will secure your child’s “seat on the bus” for this exciting adventure. The remainder of fees are due before departure in June. For more information or to register to send your child to camp contact the Camden Extension Office at 252-331-7630.
