Wake County 4-H Camp Week 2019

Wake County 4-H Youth Development partners with Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Center each year for an exceptional summer camp program. This year's camp will take place from June 23 to June 28, 2019.
Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Center is located in Reidsville and is accredited by the American Camping Association. Wake County 4-H provides charter bus transportation to and from camp. Camp fees include insurance, all meals, transportation, a camp t-shirt and camp store money. There are three options for campers during this week.

Traditional campers ages 8–12 have a week of camp filled with archery, canoeing, swimming, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, and arts and craft. Evening activities include a talent show, land and water sports, a dance, and campfires (with s'mores!). The cost for traditional camp is $470.
Adventurer campers ages 12–14 do some of the traditional camp activities like archery, swimming and canoeing, but also learn some more advanced outdoor skills such as orienteering, cooking meals on campfires, and preparing a safe campsite. Adventurer campers sleep in tents two nights during the week of camp, but do not go horseback riding. Adventurers participate in the talent show, dance, and land and water sports during the evenings. The cost for Adventurer camp is $470.
Trekker campers ages 13–14 are focused on some advanced outdoor activities during the camp week. They learn how to canoe and learn advanced canoeing skills, as well as how to rock climb. A highlight for the Trekkers is a two-day, off-site climbing and river canoeing trip. Because of the off-site trip, Trekkers do not participate in the talent show or land and water sports, but they are back at camp in time for the dance on Thursday evening. The cost for Trekker camp is $490.
