Save the date: 2024 State 4-H Camp planned for the week of June 23-28, 2024

Sending your son or daughter to sleep away camp for the summer is a major decision.  Most of the time, this is a child’s first experience away from home without parents.  What if we said that instead of going away for the whole summer, children can get the same experience in just a week?  Currituck County 4-H has a great opportunity for you!  County 4-H staff has organized and will accompany youth ages 8-12 years old to Eastern 4-H Center in Columbia, NC during the week of June 23-28, 2024. 


Children can try canoeing, archery, swimming, and more!  Sleep away camp is the perfect place for your child to become more independent and confident in themselves.  In just one short week, you will notice a difference in your child and they will make tons of memories to last a lifetime!

Campers sleep in modern cabins with multiple indoor showers and restroom facilities.  Each cabin houses up to 22 participants with at least two counselors available to provide constant,  safe supervision.  Campers bring their own sleeping bags or bed linens, as well as clothing and toiletries.  The Eastern 4-H Center provides all the specialized equipment for camp activities.  

Nutritious, balanced meals are served family-style, three times a day.  Snacks and juice provided in the evenings.  The camp store is also open in the afternoons for ice cream, soft drinks, snacks and souvenirs.  We guarantee your child will have an unforgettable experience!

The cost for camp is $535.00 which includes transportation, meals, lodging, insurance, camp t-shirt, and $15 camp store money.  Payment plans are available and we may also have some scholarship money available for qualifying families.  Space is limited so please do not hesitate calling and requesting your spot.


At this time we have five spots for girls and five spots for boys. If you are interested please don’t hesitate to call NC Cooperative Extension – Currituck Center at (252) 232 – 2262.   

If you need accommodations for persons with disabilities, please contact Stephanie Minton at  or by calling (252) 232-2261 no later than 21 days before the event.
