4-H camp is a great experience for 4-H members. 4-H camp has a rich history and tradition in Missouri. 4-H staff have conducted camps for more than 60 years. Historically, 4-H camps were some of the original users of the group camp facilities found in Missouri state parks, and today many 4-H camps still use them.

4-H camp programs offer a variety of camping experiences:

  • Residential Camps for one or more nights
  • STEM and Arts & Crafts
  • Community Service
  • Camp Fires
  • Teamwork Activities

Camping also provides opportunities to experience new and exciting activities. Climbing walls, swimming, archery, canoeing and many other activities are offered in a safe, supervised environment where campers can explore new areas of interest with encouragement from trained counselors and staff. To gear up for camp, check out these camp songs brought to you by the State 4-H Council.

Traditional 4-H Camp

Together we'll explore the exciting opportunities of 4-H! We'll navigate the confidence course, paddle a canoe, shoot archery, and make traditional crafts to take home. We'll also enjoy our old camp favorites like swimming in the lake, evening recreation activities, line dancing, and of course, campfires!

Camp Counselor Application - Spring

Being a camp counselor is an opportunity for 4-H members age 14-18 to attend camp and give back to younger 4-H members. With that being said, we encourage all interested 4-H members to complete the camp counselor application. Camp counselor status comes with responsibility. Although camp is a fun and rewarding experience for counselors, it is still a job to help create positive camping members for 4-H youth. Counselors will be selected through an application and interview process, this will be a positive learning experience for the counselors as well as help us create an effective leadership team.
