Chatham County 4-H is headed back to camp summer of 2024. Located near Reidsville, NC, BJP Educational Center is 220 acres of beautiful recreational property for youth ages 8-14. We will spend a week of overnight camping and exploring under the guidance of nurturing, caring, and capable camp staff. While at camp, your students will have the opportunity to experience many different activities, programs, and facilities, including:

Archery, Cabins, Trails, Campfire Circles, Environmental Education, Programs and activities, Teambuilding & Challenge Courses, Swimming, Canoeing, Arts and crafts, Classrooms, Dining Facilities, Meeting Facilities, Rec Halls, Outdoor Education Programs, Outdoor Living Skills, Shooting Sports.

Once again this year, Chatham County 4-H is pleased to announce our ability to offer this experience at a discounted rate for camping with our county delegation; we are only able to do this due to the generous support of our local United Way of Chatham County. For 2024, registration fees for one week of camp are $450 per youth and include all expenses related to transportation, camp rental, meals, crafts, insurance, camp t-shirt, and $15 in camp store funds.

Initial registration requires that a $50 deposit be made to secure a camping spot for each eligible youth (this deposit will count towards the total $450 fee). You do NOT have to be a 4-H member to attend. Secure a spot HERE! Early registration begins Monday, November 20th. We can provide you with a holiday gift certificate and a 4-H memento to present to your child as an extra special surprise if you secure a spot in person by Thursday, December 14th. 

Accepted payments are cash, check, or money order. Please make a check or money order payable to: Chatham County 4-H. Bring to the Chatham Co. Center of the N.C. Cooperative Extension, (1192 US-64 Bus, Pittsboro, NC 27312) by December 14th. **Payment is due in full by July 1, 2024, for child to attend.**
