Designed for youth ages 9-14 years old, led by teenage staff and 4-H adult chaperones. 

4-H Camp is a fun filled week in the Las Posadas State Forest. Campers enjoy nature activities of all kinds including hikes, nature studies, outdoor cooking, botanical drawing, nature crafts and campfires.

4-H camp is a beloved tradition for many. It's no accident that our campers rave about 4-H camp and come back year after year!
