In-Person Camps

The Arkansas 4-H State Camping Program offers camping and training opportunities for youth 5-19 years old and adults.  We offer both day camp and overnight camping, at the C. A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center, 10 miles west of Little Rock.  We have canoeing, swimming, archery, fishing, rock climbing, high ropes challenge course, off-site adventure camping, and more!
Camps take place at the Arkansas 4-H Center 
Campers will enjoy: 
  • 228 acres in the Ouachita Mountains near Little Rock
  • Air-Conditioned/Heated Lodging 
  • Lake for Canoeing and Fishing
  • Swimming Pool
  • Prepared meals with breakfast bar and salad bar


2022 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).  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.   

4-H Members:  Please contact your County Extension Office for 4-H pricing.

SCHOLARSHIPS for 4-H Members are available.  Scholarships will be awarded based on need and funding availability.  Scholarship applications for 2022 will open soon.  Stay tuned.
