4-H Camps

Exploring and discovering, encouraging and challenging; that’s what 4-H camping is all about. At three educational/recreational sites in Connecticut, 4-H campers have fun learning about themselves and the world. They have a great time making new friends in an out-of-doors setting. Campers have fun growing socially, intellectually and emotionally at 4-H camp.

Campers need not be 4-H members or live in towns near the camp. They sometimes attend with a friend and can request to be in the same cabin if they are the same age and sex. Transportation to and from camp is the responsibility of the parent.

Campers arrive at camp for one-week sessions on Sunday afternoons and depart after a closing program on Friday night. (Departure is Saturday morning at Hartford.)

Each camp has an open house in the spring for families to visit and meet the director. Call for dates or other arrangements to visit the facilities.
We offer one of the biggest camping bargains around! Camp fees are kept low with the help of numerous 4-H volunteers who work throughout the year to raise money in support of the camp program and spend hours maintaining the facilities.
