Campers are taught personal life skills and values, including fairness, caring, citizenship, trustworthiness, respect, and responsibility. 4-H camp provides opportunities for participants to learn and practice leadership, practice decision making and promotes teamwork through group activities. Camp fosters the development of positive relationships between youth and adults, who serve as positive role models, teachers and mentors.
