4-H Overnight Summer Camp
2022 4-H Summer Camp
Overnight Summer Camp Program
The Chesapeake 4-H Camp runs from July 25-29th. Registration opens on March 28th at 8 p.m. and the cost is $340. Visit the official 4-H Camp website to learn more and register for this year's camp.
Join the Fun
Camp is an opportunity to make new friends, learn and have fun in a safe environment. Each day will be a new adventure! Along the way learn a few survival skills like fishing and outdoor cooking. And for evening fun there's a pool party, and of course, singing around the campfire. Campers select their own classes, including archery, canoeing, swimming, air rifle, crafts, fishing, outdoor cooking and more! Don't let your child miss out on the fun and lasting memories!
Who's Coming to Camp?
Campers have the opportunity to interact with others in a structured but fun setting, creating a lifetime of memories. Teens are at camp to learn, supervise, teach and have fun. Adults, some with children, some without, volunteer their time and talent to ensure your child has a fun and safe adventure. Plus, the resident camp staff includes instructors, medical personnel, lifeguards, maintenance, food service, office support, program coordinator and a director. Last but not least, the 4-H Agent is joining the fun.
Remember... Camp is not a spectator sport!
Old Enough? Too Old?
Junior Camp is open to all youth 9-13 (at least 9 years old by September 30, 2022). Youth who are age 13 and will not turn 14 prior to camp week may enroll as a camper.
The Camp fee of $340 covers lodging, meals, activities, transportation, programs and camp t-shirt. Slots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.
Before You Decide
If your child has not spent several nights away from you or home, Camp is not the place to start. Be sure you and your child are ready for the separation. Also, Camp is a communal living situation, consider your child’s need for privacy, and ability to share and be responsible for his/her own possessions.
