The Sonoma County 4-H Summer Camp provides an outdoor setting for group living where young people can design a program to meet the needs of all youth. The camp experience will provide an opportunity for all participants to gain a deeper understanding of their relationships to their fellow man and the natural environment. The core of the Sonoma County 4-H camp education program is to empower young people to share as partners in decision making, camp planning and implementation, and camp leadership on a day-to-day basis.

As in most 4-H activities, camp is run by teens, called “staffers,” who start meeting before camp to organize all the aspects of camp- everything from the food to the themes for the events.  There is one teen staffer to every five youth (called campers).  There are, of course, adult chaperones there as well (one for every ten campers) and a nurse and a lifeguard on staff.

Campers take part in all the classic summer camp activities- hiking, arts and crafts, skits and songs around the campfire.  Campers sleep outside under the stars- girls on one side, boys on the other. Each side has its own bathrooms and shower.

Registration for Sonoma County 4-H Camp will open soon. Staffer Recruitment has started!
