Day Camp

Iowa 4-H Center Summer Day Camp

Weekly themed sessions for boys & girls 6-12 years old.

4-H Membership is not required to attend!


Daily Activities

Days are filled with swimming, crafts, camp programs that match the weekly theme, lunch in the camp dining hall, snacks, rest time, and group games. 


The Iowa 4-H Center is located in Boone County, northwest of Madrid off County Road E57 and south on Peach Avenue. We are located next to the Iowa Arboretum.



Day Camp sessions cost $145 a week. This fee covers transportation, lunch, daily snacks, and all the fun! Day Camp Plus is an additional fee of $45. Day Campers are eligible for discounts.

Pick-Up & Drop-Off

We serve the communities of Ames, Boone, Madrid, Polk City, Granger, Grimes, and Ankeny, picking up day campers each morning between 7:15-7:45 a.m. and dropping them off in the afternoon between 4:45-5:30 p.m. Direct drop-off and pick-up of your day camper at the Iowa 4-H Center is available with permission from our camp secretary.


Iowa 4-H Center Day Camp Staff are college-aged Iowa State University employees. They have gone through background checks, CPR & FA certifications, and two weeks of training in order to provide a fun and safe experience for all Day Campers.


We still have space in all of our 2012 Day Camp Sessions!
