N.C. Cooperative Extension-Avery County Center Offering 4-H Residential Camp!

There are few tools as powerful as the camp experience to impact the lives of young people positively. Whether it’s through nurturing social skills, building self-confidence, re-connecting youth with nature, or supporting positive peer-to-peer relationships, North Carolina 4-H Camps have the power to transform the lives of every child served in many constructive ways.

North Carolina 4-H currently operates three nationally accredited residential camps. The multiple life skills youth gain while at a residential camp, including responsibility and independence, will help them in school at home and enable them to become lifelong learners.
