2014 State 4-H Camp Information and FAQs


What special-themed 4-H Camps will be offered this summer at the Iowa 4-H Center?

  • 4-H Veterinary and Animal Science Camp, June 28-July 2
  • 4-H STEM Catalysts Camp, July 6-10

Who can attend these camps?

These statewide camps are for young people grades 5-8 in the 2013-14 school year. And you do not have to be a 4-H member to attend.

What will I do on a typical day at camp?

Each day will be a little bit different—but here’s a rundown of how a typical day might look:

  • Morning: you’ll take part in hands on learning activities and special programs related to the camp theme.
  • Afternoon: you’ll continue to explore the camp theme, and you’ll also have opportunities to enjoy traditional camp favorites like swimming, hiking, climbing, creative arts, recreation and sports.
  • After dinner: we’ll have evening programs, campfires, and special events. And there will also be time to just hang out and get to know your fellow campers from around the state.

How much do the camps cost?

Each camp is $240, which includes all your meals, lodging, and special programming costs. Financial aid to attend 4-H Camp at the Iowa 4-H Center is available from the Iowa 4-H Foundation website.

How do I register for these camps?

Registration is online through Iowa State University Conference Registration Services.  Payment may be made online with a credit card or a check mailed to ISU Conference Registration Services. Payment is due no later than one week after the camp's registration deadline.
