There are few tools as powerful as the camp experience to positively impact the lives of young people. Whether it’s through nurturing social skills, building self-confidence, re-connecting kids with nature, or supporting positive peer to peer relationships, North Carolina 4-H Camp has the power to transform the lives of every child that walks through our doors.

Your child can look forward to a week of making new friends, swimming, horseback riding, archery, canoeing, rock climbing, games, campfires, sleeping in cabins, and much more. The life skills they learn at camp, including responsibility and independence, will help them in school, when they attend college, and in their first jobs.

We will be camping at Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Camp June 16-21, 2024!

Children ages 8-12 can attend traditional 4-H camp. Limited spaces are available for 13-14 year-olds in the Adventure and Trekker programs.

The 4-H Camp tuition is $550 for Traditional and Adventure campers and $600 for the Trekker program, which is all-inclusive of your child’s six-day experience at an ACA-accredited camping center.


  • Reserve your space with a $75 non-refundable deposit. Checks can be made payable to Madison County 4-H.
    • Current Madison County 4-H members only can register November 27-January 31st.
    • Enrollment for all Madison County youth (regardless of 4-H membership) will open February 1st, and continue until spaces are full.
