Rowan County 4-H will be taking youth ages 8-14 (as of January 1) to Residential 4-H Camp on July 4-9, 2021, at Betsy-Jeff Penn camping facility in Reidsville, NC. Betsy-Jeff Penn is a fully-staffed camping facility and is accredited through the American Camp Association. This camp is open to current 4-H’ers and non-4-H’ers as well. To attend, you must register through Rowan County 4-H using this form: 2021 4-H Camp Registration.

We have TWO scholarships available for youth who must be from low-income families. If your family qualifies One scholarship is for youth ages 8-12 for traditional camp and one is for youth ages 12-14 for the adventurer or trekker program. Applications are due no later than May 7, 2021.

4-H Camp Scholarship Application

Residential 4-H Camp costs $450 for those who register with Rowan County 4-H. For current Rowan County 4-H’ers who have been active in 4-H for at least 6 months, Rowan County 4-H will cover $40 per camper; this makes the family cost $410. All other attendees must pay the entire cost of $450. 

Campers can register directly through the Betsy-Jeff Penn website, but their fee to attend will be higher than the 4-H fee.

If your child plans to attend 4-H Camp with Rowan County 4-H, a $200 non-refundable deposit is due to N.C. Cooperative Extension of Rowan County by Wednesday, April 7, 2021. Checks should be made out to Rowan CES. This deposit must be turned in along with a registration form (linked above).


The remaining balance is due by Friday, May 7. A required “Camp Meeting” must be attended on Zoom on Thursday, May 6 at 7 p.m. for all those who are attending 4-H camp. This meeting is for the camp participant and at least one parent/guardian. Additional camping forms will need to be filled out but will be sent to those who register by April 7.

The NC 4-H Camping Center is working hard to make changes to ensure participant & staff safety this summer. Learn more here.
