Napa 4-H Summer Camp offers children, teenagers, and adults an outdoor environment to foster healthy living. Camp takes place in the Las Posadas Demonstration State Forest at the historic 1928 Las Posadas 4-H Camp

Las Posadas is a state experimental forest in a beautiful canyon filled with Redwood, Pine, and Oak trees. The camp is about a 45 minute drive from Napa. The camp is directed by a team of adult counselors and teen staff. A qualified lifeguard and nurse are on duty at all times. Three professional cooks, experienced in preparing nutritional and well-balanced menus, do the cooking. Three meals a day are served from a central kitchen, and nutritional snacks will be offered at different times during the day.

All Napa County 4-H members, leaders and parents are invited to participate. Campers need to be 9 years old by the first day of camp. The camp program provides for learning experiences in nature, hiking, outdoor cooking, crafts, and many other activities. Ping-pong, volleyball, and swimming are available during the day. Campfire programs include: songs, skits, and recreation. The purpose of the camp is to enjoy learning, respect and responsibility for ourselves, others and the environment. Campers sleep outside under the stars on raised wooden platforms- girls on one side, boys on the other.  Each side has its own bathrooms and shower.

Participating in camp programs help youth build self confidence, meet new people, and experience new opportunities. Napa 4-H offers two weeks of 4-H summer camp annually.
