4-H Specialty Camps
Throughout the year we offer camps that are as unique as your child! Specialty Camps are designed to challenge each camper to reach their full potential and learn more about themselves and the world around them.
These are overnight programs, in which the children will stay onsite for one or two nights, depending on the age and program.
Please contact Ruben Brown, [email protected] our Program Director for additional information.
Our 4-H Specialty Camps have included:
- Archery Camp
- Spring and Summer Cloverbud Camps
- Spring Break Camps
- Plus more!
