The 4-H Program is grounded in university and research-based learning which 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.
The Harold & Mitzie James 4-H Camp & Outdoor Learning Center is fully accredited by the American Camp Association. ACA Accreditation means that our camp cares enough to undergo a thorough peer review of our operation — from staff qualifications and training to emergency management.
American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at James 4-H Camp reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. Credit: ACA
