4-H Summer Camp

Napa Camp 2
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 1929 Las Posadas 4-H Camp

Camp is run by teens, called "staffers," who start meeting in the fall to organize all the aspects of camp- everything from the food to the themes for the events.  There is one teen staffer to every five youth (called campers).  There are, of course, adult chaperones there as well (one for every ten campers) and a nurse and a lifeguard on staff. Campers take part in all the classic summer camp activities- hiking, swimming, arts and crafts, skits and songs around the campfire.  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.
