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.

2021 State Camp Information

If approved by the University, state 4-H camp will be in person with COVID-19 precautions. If in-person camp is not permissible, there will be a virtual state 4-H camp.

Revision to 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.


  • Registration opens April 1, 2021 for active 4-H'ers. Non 4-H'ers may register beginning May 1.
  • You may register online or print a paper registration form.
  • Payment: If you register online, you may pay by credit card or mailed check for full amount due. If you register by paper form, you can only pay by mailed check.
