How do youth benefit from 4-H camping?

Youth have the opportunity to learn and have fun in a safe environment while surrounded by caring adults.


A study of Virginia 4-H camping conducted in 2002 with 11,000 youth campers ages 9 to 13 from across the state found that 4-H camp participation helped youth to learn to:

  • Make new friends
  • Develop new skills
  • Become more independent and able to take care of themselves


A study of 363 parents/guardians of Virginia 4-H campers conducted in 2001 found that 4-H camp participation changed youths’ behaviors in the areas of:

  • Taking care of their own things (self-responsibility)
  • Becoming more independent/taking initiative
  • Sharing
