In-Person Camps

The Arkansas 4-H State Camping Program offers camping and training opportunities for youth 5-19 years old and adults.  We offer both day camp and overnight camping, at the C. A. Vines Arkansas 4-H Center, 10 miles west of Little Rock.  We have canoeing, swimming, archery, fishing, rock climbing, high ropes challenge course, off-site adventure camping, and more!
 
Camps take place at the Arkansas 4-H Center 
 
Campers will enjoy: 
  • 228 acres in the Ouachita Mountains near Little Rock
  • Air-Conditioned/Heated Lodging 
  • Lake for Canoeing and Fishing
  • Swimming Pool
  • Prepared meals

 

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.

4-H Members are eligible to apply for Camp/TLC Scholarships.  Scholarships are based on need and availibility.  Scholarship Applications are open now.  There are two deadlines for applications.  Applications for events with registration deadlines prior to March 1 are due by January 2 at noon.  Applications for events with deadlines after March 1 are due by March 2 at noon.  The applications are the same.  If you turn in an application by the January 2 deadline there is no need to apply.  

Registration for camps typically open approximately 1 month before the registration deadline.

All camps are open to 4-H Members.  Some camps are also open to NON Members.
