Map of 4-H day and overnight camps across Missouri

Camp with 4-H and participate in one of the great experiences of your 4-H career! Camp provides the full benefits of a 4-H experience coupled with the fun and wonder of camping in the great outdoors.

Stretch your horizons, meet new people, breathe fresh air, sing silly songs, share in camp responsibilities, crawl into a sleeping bag, laugh with friends, learn something new, try something out of the ordinary, be independent, create your own skit, play outdoors, and much more. 4-H Camp — be part of it this summer!

Teen counselor opportunities!

Teen cabin counselors are utilized at each camp to act as positive role models, provide leadership, and be a mentor to the youth they supervise. Please contact your local extension office to explore available opportunities.


The best gift we can give our kids is to empower them with skills that will last for a lifetime. At 4-H camp kids learn critical life skills like resilience and independence. If we want our kids to be able to bounce back from adversity, stress, challenges and failures, teaching them resilience is key. Having experiences outside their comfort zones help young people become more resilient, more independents and better able to plan and reach their long-term goals.


State Excellence Awards: Level 1.

  • Up to 5 of these awards will be made per region yearly. Each applicant will receive a $50 scholarship to be used toward a 4-H Camping Experience.
