About Camp: Placer County 4-H Summer Camp is hosted at Woodchuck Flat Campground which is nestled in the beautiful Tahoe National Forest. There are many fun activities to do at 4-H camp! There are arts and crafts, a variety of outdoor activities available throughout the week; such as sport's and zip-line, lake time and campfire! Campers are divided into tribes for day-time activities, led by youth camp staff members. Meals are prepared by experienced cooks and there is a licensed nurse on staff at all times. 

 

What does my child need to bring to camp: Campers sleep in tents, the girls on one side of camp and the boys on the other. They are in small groups with a teen camp staffer and an adult chaperone.  Campers need to bring a cot or sleeping mat, sleeping bag, pillow and blanket, as well as a change per day of camp appropriate clothing, bug spray, flashlight, toiletries and a towel for shower time and one for lake time. Do not forget a re-usable water bottle! While there are restroom facilities with showers, there is no available electrical source for campers. Please leave all food, candy, scented lotions and electronics at home. It does get cold, so be sure to send a blanket and layering clothes with a jacket for your camper. Placer County 4-H Summer Camp Packing List

 

Who is responsible for my child at 4-H Camp? Trained youth counselors, adult volunteers and 4-H staff all have the camper's safety as a primary concern.  There is an 1 to 8 ratio, with both the emotional and physical safety taken into consideration with regard to the camp activities and events. We have a licensed nurse on property that will monitor medications and first aid. We also have a certified lifeguard to oversee all the swimming and water activities. Emergency plans set by the University of California have been put in place by the camp director and 4-H staff. Our youth and adult staff have been involved in training to prepare them for the week long camp experience.
