Sending your son or daughter to sleep-away camp for the summer is a major decision. Most of the time, this is a child’s first experience away from home without parents. What if we said that instead of going away for the whole summer, children can get the same experience in just a week? Currituck County 4-H has a great opportunity for you! County 4-H staff have organized and will accompany youth to Eastern 4-H Center in Columbia, NC during the week of June 24-29, 2018.

According to a study by Clemson University researchers and commissioned by the North Carolina Youth Camp Association (NCUCA), 91% of parents associated camp involvement with school success. This association was reflected in how camp prepares youth for life transitions,  reinforces life lessons learned at home, and prepares youth for independent living. It was stated that “parents specifically reported increases in developmental outcomes like resilience, cooperation, communication, critical thinking, and decision-making – skills closely mapped to ’21st Century Skills’ that employers have identified as important for future workforce success.”

Children can try canoeing, archery, swimming, and more! Sleep-away camp is the perfect place for your children to become more independent and confident in themselves. In just one short week, you will notice a difference in your child and they will make tons of memories to last a lifetime!

Campers sleep in modern cabins with multiple indoor showers and restroom facilities. Each cabin houses up to 22 participants with at least two counselors available to provide constant,  safe supervision. Campers bring their own sleeping bags or bed linens, as well as clothing and toiletries. The Eastern 4-H Center provides all the specialized equipment for camp activities. Nutritious, balanced meals are served family-style, three times a day. Snacks and juice are served mid-mornings and evenings. The camp store is also open in the afternoons for ice cream, soft drinks, snacks and souvenirs. We guarantee your child will have an unforgettable experience!

The cost for camp is $420.00 which includes transportation, meals, lodging, insurance, camp t-shirt, and $15 camp store money. Payment plans are available and some limited scholarship assistance is available on the basis of financial need. For more information or to register to send your child to camp contact Stephanie Minton or Sherry Fischlschweiger at 252-232-2262.

4-H is North Carolina’s largest youth development organization, equipping more than 247,000 young people each year with the skills to succeed and improve the world around them. 4-H programs and camps encourage young people to “learn by doing,” helping them to develop into active, contributing citizens. NC State Extension and the Cooperative Extension Program at N.C. A&T State University coordinate 4-H programs statewide.
