  • 228 acres in the Ouachita Mountains near Little Rock
  • Air-Conditioned/Heated Lodging 
  • Lake for Canoeing and Fishing
  • Swimming Pool
  • Prepared meals with breakfast bar and salad bar

 

2022 dates are tentative.

We offer camps with a wide range of learning opportunities; from wilderness adventure to crafts, our 4-H camping program has it all!

Parents/Volunteers are welcome to attend most of our camps (unless noted as youth only).  Parents/Volunteers wanting to attend camp will need to complete the volunteer leader screening process.  This usually takes several weeks to be processed so please start the process early.  Contact your county agent on how to begin.

Registration for 4-H members will be through the Arkansas 4-H Enrollment & Events System, unless otherwise noted.   

Registration will open approximately 1 month before the registration deadline.

Some camps are open to members and non members.  

SCHOLARSHIPS for 4-H Members are available.  Scholarships will be awarded based on need and funding availability.  Scholarship application for 2022 is now OPEN.  If you are applying for events that happen before March you will need to apply by January 14 at NOON.  The final deadline will be March 1 at NOON.  If you apply by the early deadline there is no need to reapply.  Applications can be found at https://bit.ly/22CampScholarship.
