Delaware 4-H Camps


Each summer Delaware 4-H provides many opportunities for 4-H members and the public to participate in camps. Some camp programs are offered as state-wide camps, while others are offered by individual county offices. Both day camps and overnight camps are offered.

*Revision to Statewide Camp Attendance Policy for Summer 2021

With plans ongoing for an in-person Delaware 4-H State Camp and Environmental Camp experience, we felt it important to share the following revisions to the attendance policy in light of in-person safety restrictions and compliance with state and university health guidance.

1) Any camper of 4-H age who attended Delaware 4-H State Camp, either virtually, or in person before 2021, is eligible to register for Delaware 4-H State Camp in 2021.

2) Any camper who did not attend Delaware 4-H State Camp prior to 2020 and will be a first year camper between the ages of 10-12 will be required to register for the 4-H State Environmental Camp in 2021 before being permitted to register for State Camp in subsequent years.

3) Campers will be notified of their camp enrollment for 2021 once a review is made of past camp attendance.
