Millstone 4-H Summer Camp Discount Offer
Overnight Summer Camp at the Millstone 4-H Camp Center is June 19-24, 2022!

Millstone 4-H Camp is an ACA accredited camp that provides age appropriate, small group experiences in a safe, enjoyable environment. Campers enjoy daily activities such as swimming, canoeing, nature programs, horseback riding, target sports, climbing wall, arts and crafts, hiking, campfires, talent shows and more!

Next summer, Moore County 4-H will take a small group of campers on this overnight camp experience. We are still in the process of determining the overall cost of camp for our Moore County 4-H participants, but we typically offer a discount rate for those who provide their deposit and enroll/re-enroll in Moore County 4-H early in the new year. Thanks to grant funding, donations and sponsorships we are able to offer this camping experience at a reduced cost to families and provide scholarships for those in need! If you would like to be placed on the email list to be the first to receive the Discount Offer & Scholarship Information, please complete this Millstone 4-H Camp Interest Form.

*If you were to sign up for this camp directly with the Millstone 4-H Camp Center, the camp fee is $500.
2022 International NC 4-H Outbound Opportunities
Announcing 2022 Outbound 4-H International Program Opportunities to the following countries: Japan, South Korea, Costa Rica, Norway, Taiwan, Romania, and Argentina.

North Carolina 4-H, through the States' 4-H International Exchange Program offers opportunities for members and their families to become part of a growing tradition that includes leadership, cultural exploration, and fun! Through the 4-H Inbound and Outbound exchange programs provided through NC 4-H, families gain a wealth of knowledge, life-changing experiences, and shared memories that will last a lifetime!

Summer Outbound programs provide 4-H youth with the opportunity to travel to foreign countries for a cultural immersion experience. Outbound delegates live with volunteer host families and engage in experiential learning about a new way of life. Delegates experience aspects of daily life that allow them to more deeply understand both their host culture and their own culture. Our network of like-minded international partners recruit host families and plan enrichment activities for the delegation. The Outbound program is open to current or recent 4-H members who have participated in a county or state program.

NC 4-H International Exchange Program
Online Applications for 2022 Outbound are due by December 15, 2021.
