Summer Camp

Georgia's 4-H summer camping program is unparalleled in the nation. Over 8,000 children in grades 4-12, 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.   

You might have heard of one of the 4-H centers: Rock Eagle, the largest 4-H center in the world; Wahsega, located in the north Georgia mountains; Camp Burton on Tybee Island; or Camp Jekyll located at the beach, or Fortson just outside Atlanta. Hope to see you there!
