4-H Discovery Farm Summer Day Camps
at Alpenrose Dairy in SW Portland

(ages 7-12)

9:00 am to 1:00 pm daily

Cost:  $110


Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging; that’s what 4-H day camps are all about. At Alpenrose Dairyville, 4-H campers have fun learning about themselves and the world. They have a great time making new friends in the old fashioned setting. Campers have fun growing socially, intellectually and emotionally at this 4-H camp. We create a safe and incredibly fun environment where kids can be themselves, learn new skills, and have excellent role models. We believe that the 4-H camp experiences in store will help to create lasting memories with good ol’ fashioned fun. Campers need not be 4-H members to attend these day camps.
