For more than 100 years, Oregon State University Extension 4-H camping has been a proven and effective method of teaching youth life skills and providing a safe, engaging and FUN learning experience that provides lifelong friendships and memories for a lifetime. 4-H camping teaches youth to make their own decisions, solve problems, and manage their resources by providing hands-on experiential learning. Through involvement in the 4-H camping program, youth gain a better appreciation of living as a community by learning how to become more responsible and think critically.
