COVID-19 Notes:

The AR 4-H Camps office will be working remotely until further notice.  You can contact me via email, Messenger, cell phone/text.  I will not be reachable via my office phone.  I am holding off on opening events until we know more about our summer plans.   
 
I will be conducting VIRTUAL CAMPS on Wednesday afternoons.  I will post a supplies list the Friday before the session.  I will host these sessions via Zoom.  Anyone is welcome to join.  I have links listed beside some supplies.  These links are for reference to the material.  Most supplies can be purchased for several different sources.  Please keep price and your health in mind when ordering.  Several places are offering free shipping or curside pick up.  I encourage you to shop around.  You do not need to have all the supplies inorder to join the virtual session.

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

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.

SCHOLARSHIPS for 4-H Members are available.  Scholarships will be awarded based on need and funding availability.  Applications deadline has passed. 

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

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