Taste of Camp is designed for your camper to explore and experience camping activites and traditions in a safe, fun and welcoming environment. Membership in the 4-H Program is not required to attend the ISU Extension and Outreach Taste of Camp. All youth entering 1-8 grade (fall 2017) are welcome to attend!

Youth entering into grades 5-8 may attend the full camp on Wednesday, June 14  to Friday, June 16. Youth entering into grades 1-4 may attend 'Mini Camp' on Thursday, June 15 to Friday, June 16

Cost is based on a three-tier system. Please see the

The Iowa 4-H Foundation has funds for youth who need financial assistance to participate in a 4-H camp at Clover Woods Camp. These funds are intended to provide an opportunity for youth who otherwise would be financially unable to participate in 4-H camp sessions offered by ISU Extension and Outreach. Submit the youth 4-H Camp application to the Madison County Extension office on or postmarked by  April 25 . Late or incomplete applications will not be considered. 

Camp creates an atmosphere conducive to expanding interest, appreciation and knowledge of the natural environment and sciences. Your camper will have an opportunity to learn about living, working
and playing together as well as respect for nature.

Your camper will have the chance to build a campfire, explore a marsh, make camp crafts, perform skits and songs, go on a nature hike, splash in the swimming pool and participate in other outdoor activities. 

Family members are invited to the Closing Ceremony
and campfire on Friday, June 16 from 6-9 PM. 




Research shows youth campers benefit in a host of ways, from being smarter,
to be more cooperative and to having better overall health. 

Activities at a 4-H camp are led and supervised by Iowa State University
4-H staff along with trained adult and teen volunteers.

Like all 4-H programs, Iowa 4-H camping is focused on the 4-H outcomes of developing
productive citizens, outstanding communicators, effective leaders and successful learners.
