Pack Your Bags! We’re Going to Camp

Louisiana 4-H Summer Camp is a memorable experience that encourages youth to make new friends, learn responsibility, develop a sense of independence and engage in exciting educational opportunities. The five-day camp program offers educational tracks, afternoon recreational activities and free time to explore a variety of interests that encourage creativity, communication and problem-solving.

Each day campers select from one of seven educational tracks, such as outdoor skills, water safety, Louisiana wetlands, general arts, food and fitness, hunter education, and science, engineering and technology. The camp offers a wide variety of recreational activities — including swimming, canoeing, tubing, kayaking, arts and crafts, and line dancing — to help campers discover and develop skills and increase confidence and self-esteem.

The first nine weeks are offered to youth in fourth through sixth grades. The final session, called Louisiana Outdoor Science and Technology (LOST) Camp, is geared toward seventh- and eighth-grade campers.
