AR 4-H Camp Leadership Opportunities


Arkansas 4-H Camp Leadership Opportunities

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!

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 camps typically open approximately 1 month before the registration deadline.

All camps are open to 4-H Members.  Members, be sure you have re-enrolled through the online system.  Members will register through the enrollment system.

Some camps are also open to NON Members. Non Members will register through the links listed with each camp.

Camps are subject to change.
