AR 4-H Camps

Ages 9 - 13

The following dates are tentative.

We offer camps with a wide range of learning opportunities; from wilderness adventure to crafts, our 4-H camping program has it all!

Parents/Volunteers are welcome to attend most of our camps (unless noted as youth only) for the same fee as the youth.  Parents/Volunteers wanting to attend camp will need to complete the volunteer leader screening process.  This usually takes several weeks to be processed so please start the process early.  Contact your county agent on how to begin.

Registration for 4-H members will be through the Arkansas 4-H Enrollment & Events System, unless otherwise noted.   

SCHOLARSHIPS for 4-H Members are available.  Scholarships will be awarded based on need and funding availability.  Apply for scholarships HERE.  Applications are due by 3/1/2021 @ NOON.

Registration will open approximately 1 month prior to registration deadline.  All camps are held at the AR 4-H Center unless otherwise noted.
