James 4-H Camp
The Harold and Mitzie James 4-H Camp & Outdoor Learning Center is surrounded by magnificent vistas, valleys, and meadows on 55 acres of unspoiled Ponderosa Pine forest. It is a breathtaking location that will exceed your expectations.
Through a number of generous donations, the Arizona 4-H Program is pleased to have been given the opportunity to purchase and operate its own 4-H Camping facility, the only one of its kind in the state.
Schools, universities, governmental, religious and special interest organizations have found the isolation and beautiful surroundings ideal for many types of programs, just 45 minutes from Prescott, AZ and 2 hours from Phoenix.
The camp offers modern facilities that are clean and comfortable. The 100 bed camp has modern heated cabins with restrooms and shower facilities easily accessible. We offer a spacious dining hall, patio, fire pit and various activity areas for programming and a spacious lawn for play and learning. The health center is centrally located and all staff are CPR/First Aid certified and have passed federal and state background checks.
The 4-H Program, traditionally grounded in university and research-based learning, allows youth to reach their full potential through experiential learning, leadership and life skill building. 4-H Camping is cooperative group living in a natural environment that focuses on hands-on learning and developing life skills by providing a framework for mentoring and role modeling. At camp youth learn how to take care of themselves and become more independent while enjoying a variety of classes and socializing with peers, teen leaders and adults from differing backgrounds.
4-H Camping Programs have the unique opportunity to reach a variety of audiences, bringing together those from limited income, underserved families as well as those with access to a variety of services; youth living in both urban and rural areas; and those who participate in other aspects of 4-H in a club or school enrichment activity.
