Adventure awaits you at every turn at 4-H Memorial Camp. Every day is packed with activities that will challenge you to try new and exciting things. Best of all, you get to choose the activities you like the most! Meeting new friends is one of the best parts of camp.


While at camp your child can swim, boat, climb the rock wall, make crafts, fish, take hayrack rides, participate in archery, participate in S.T.E.M. activities, hike, make s’mores over a camp fire and so much more! We will have counselors in every cabin with the campers and staff providing programs at Outdoor Education, Waterfront, Recreation, Arts & Crafts, the Climbing Tower and Creation Station (S.T.E.M. activities). You get to choose from a wide selection of activities during parts of the day and participate in whole group activities during other parts. Whether you are with your cabin group, color team, or just hanging out with some of your new friends, there is always plenty of fun things to do!
