4-H Center Camps

4‑H overnight and day camps offer recreational and educational opportunities in a camp setting. 4‑H camps provide youth with the chance to meet new people, have fun, and experience the great outdoors. Meeting new friends and trying new things are two great reasons kids love coming to camp! Have you paddled a canoe, ridden a horse or made a tie dyed shirt before? Campers participate in classes on a broad range of topics such as natural science, technology (GPS or Robots) and even cooking!  4-H camps take place at the Oregon 4-H Center in Salem and in local county based sites throughout the state. Some camps have specific themes of interest to campers. So check it out and find the camp that is right for you. Which ever camp you pick- it will be the best thing you did all summer!
