Arkansas 4-H Camps

COVID-19 Notes:

The AR 4-H Camps office has returned to the office on a limited basis.  When not in the office we will be working remotely.  The best way to contact me will still be via email, Messenger, cell phone/text.  
UPDATE:  We have been monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and will continue to do so.  As of right now we will not be holding any face to face camps until further notice.  We are still hosting our virtual camp sessions monthly now that school is back in session.  See more details below.  While virtual camps are not ideal because they don't provide the in person connections that make camp important we want to continue to serve our camp families to the best of our abilities during this time.  We are making our decisions in order to keep our camp families and staff healthy and safe.  Thank you for your patience and understanding.

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 with breakfast bar and salad bar


2021 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) for the same fee as the youth.  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.   

SCHOLARSHIPS for 4-H Members are available.  Scholarships will be awarded based on need and funding availability.  Apply for scholarships HERE.  Applications are due by 3/1/2021 @ NOON.

Registration will open approximately 1 month prior to registration deadline.  All camps are held at the AR 4-H Center unless otherwise noted.
