The Iowa 4-H Foundation has funds for youth who need financial assistance to participate in a 4-H camp at the Iowa 4-H Center. 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 Dallas County Extension office on or postmarked by June 1 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 friendships, explore nature, make camp crafts, perform skits and songs,  hike, splash in the swimming pool and zip line or wall climb ('Full Camp' only). 
Family members are invited to the Closing Ceremony
June 11 at 3 p.m. 


  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.
