Camp Leadership Opportunities 


Camp Leadership Opportunities

Arkansas 4-H Camps offer several opportunities for youth to develop leadership skills. We have positions for teens and college students to take on leadership roles. 

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

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


There are scholarships for youth available. Scholarships will be awarded based on need and fund availability. Applications are available NOW. Application deadline for events with a registration deadline of March 1 or sooner is January 3rd at noon. Applications for all other events are due March 1 at noon. The application for both deadlines is the same, no need to apply twice. 

Here is the scholarship application!
