4-H has a long tradition of being at the forefront of youth development, and 4-H camps offered through University of Tennessee Extension are no exception. Tennessee 4-H operates camps all across the state, and now is the time to sign up your child for 4-H camp. Several camps are available to 4-Hers this summer. 4-Hers in grades 4th - 6th can attend Junior Camp in Crossville this summer the week of June 15-19, 2015 at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center.
The Center features an air-conditioned recreation hall and dining hall, and is known for the quality of its home-cooked meals. Eight air-conditioned cabins with up-to-date bath facilities sleep more than 500 persons and provide a restful atmosphere for campers. Campers can enjoy an Olympic-size pool with a 125-foot water slide. Two lakes allow campers to enjoy fishing, canoeing, kayaking and even a paddle boat ride. Other facilities include a covered basketball court, sports fields, a wildlife center, and two adventure challenge courses. The Center is located on 194 acres offering a variety of rustic scenery. The maintained grounds are fenced for security purposes. Cost of camp is $300 which includes activities, transportation, meals, and lodging.
Also held at the Clyde M. York 4-H Center is the 4-H Adventure Camp for grades 7th and 8th. 4-Hers can participate in zip-lining, swimming, playing sports, kayaking and canoeing, the rifle range, campfires, and making crafts. In addition to regular camp activities, 4-H Adventure Camp will offer a field trip to Big South Fork Park. Cost of camp is $300 which includes activities, transportation, meals, and lodging.
Tennessee State 4-H Electric Camp is a fun-filled, rewarding adventure in electricity at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville for 6th and 7th graders held in July 7-10, 2015. At camp, 4-H members will learn what electricity is and how it works. Campers will work with electrical specialists from across the state in learning centers. Each learning center will consist of hands-on activities so that you can learn by doing. Participants will meet other 4-H'ers from across Tennessee and explore careers in energy, electricity and basic sciences. Each camper will receive a certificate, a T-shirt and items that they have made at camp. It's really an electrifying experience! Cost is $245 and includes meals, transportation, lodging, and a trip to Dollywood.
All applications for these camps and other information can be found at the University of Tennessee Extension Office in Woodbury. Additional information can be found at
