Objectives of 4-H Camping
  1. To have educational, recreational, and social experiences in outdoor living away from home.
  2. To provide opportunities to meet and learn to get along with other people by living together and participating in a camping experience.
  3. To provide opportunities for youth to learn to take responsibility for their own decisions and actions.
  4. To offer new experiences for youth by exploring new interests, or by exposing them to new approaches to old interests, such as nature, aquatics, music, and other life skills that cannot be provided as effectively outside of camp.
  5. To teach youth about citizenship and the importance of being a responsible citizen.
  6. To discover and provide opportunities for developing leadership skills.
  7. To discover special talents among campers and teen leaders and provide opportunities for developing these talents.
  8. To learn to meet individual and group responsibilities.
  9. To enrich the ongoing 4-H club program and to involve youth in unit 4-H clubs.
