North Carolina 4-H


For more than 80 years, North Carolina 4-H camping has taught youth life skills through centers located from the mountains to the sand hills to the coast. Each year, more than 4,000 campers from across the state participate in 4-H camping programs at North Carolina’s 4-H educational centers. Thousands more participate in conferences, school enrichment programs, special events and workshops.

"First I was afraid to talk to people and I was shy.
Now I can talk and be myself.
I have changed the way I make friends.
I would let them come to me.
But now I go to them..."

"I used to be like hurry up, and now I am patient...
I always said I can't and now I say I can..."

"Millstone is like my own corner of the world. It is the only place I've ever felt 100% comfortable and 100% myself."

"I am not as shy, I’m making more friends, and I’m learning new things. I have made changes because this is not like anything I’ve ever done before and it makes me want to try new things."
