Camp & Summer

*We are continuing to update our summer camp information as it becomes available from the University of Georgia and Georgia 4-H. At this time plans are to move forward with Georgia 4-H summer camps, however the University of Georgia will continue to monitor public health conditions and will make the final call regarding camp on May 4, 2021. Camp capacities have been reduced and new health and safety measures have been put in place.

Fulton County 4-H offers overnight camps (see below), day camps, and camps for military families.

Every year 4-H offers away camps for 4th-12th graders. You might head to Rock Eagle, the largest 4-H center in the world, the north Georgia mountains, the beach, or Atlanta. Hope to see you there!

For questions regarding overnight camps, please contact Von Baker at vbaker@uga.edu.

Overnight Camp Registration

Registration for all 2021 camps will open to all families on March 29, 2021 at 6 PM. Please remember that registration for camp is based upon the grade the 4-H'er is in during the current school year.  Our camps are available on a first come, first serve basis and we have limited spaces for each.  If a camp becomes full, we will utilize wait lists in case any spots become available.

Refunds

2021 Refund Considerations due to COVID-19 Prior to the Start of Camp: To support families experiencing adverse impacts from the COVID-19 pandemic, including job loss or care for sick family members, if the need arises to cancel camper registration prior to arrival at camp, campers are eligible for a full refund (including deposit). In promotion of healthy camp environments, if campers are ill or have a known or suspected exposure to COVID-19 prior to arrival at camp, they will need to cancel their registration and are eligible for a full refund (including deposit). Georgia 4-H will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and its impacts. If it is determined that any week of camp has to be cancelled or rescheduled, campers are eligible for full refund (including deposit).

2021 Refund Considerations due to COVID-19 After the Start of Camp: The cohort model employed this summer, used to address important health and safety concerns, may require some campers and leaders to isolate and leave camp based on symptoms, exposure, and/or contact tracing.  Partial refunds will be given in that case.

Refund Considerations Unrelated to COVID-19: Requests for refunds that result from cancellations or leaving camp early for reasons not related to COVID-19 will be reviewed using existing procedures.
