Registration for Delaware 4-H State Camps opens April 1 at 10:00 am for active 4-H'ers. Registration for non 4-H'ers will open May 1. If registering online, you may pay either by credit card or mail a check for the full balance due.  If you register by paper form, you can only pay by check.

 

If approved by the University, state 4-H camp will be in person with COVID-19 precautions.  If in person camp is not permissible, there will be a virtual state 4-H camp.  

 Revision to Camp Attendance Policy for Summer 2021 

 
With plans ongoing for an in-person 2021 Delaware 4-H State Camp and Environmental Camp experience, we felt it important to share the following revisions to the attendance policy in light of in-person safety restrictions and compliance with state and university health guidance.   

 
1. Any camper of 4-H age who attended Delaware 4-H State Camp, either virtually or in person before 2021, is eligible to register for Delaware 4-H State Camp in 2021.

2. Any camper who did not attend Delaware 4-H State Camp prior to 2020 and will be a first year camper between the ages of 10-12 will be required to register for 4-H State Environmental Camp in 2021 before being permitted to register for State Camp in subsequent years.

  3. Campers will be notified of their camp enrollment for 2021 once a review is made of past camp attendance.
