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 

We offer several opportunities for youth to develop leadership skills.  We have opportunities for teens and college students to take on leadership roles. 

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.
