4-H Summer Camp

Theme: Campout Play

Thank you for all your patience as we try to navigate through this COVID-19 pandemic and figure out logistics as it relates to resident overnight camp. We are trying to stay hopeful that camp will happen but we can't move forward until we receive guidelines from the California Department of Public Health and San Mateo County Public Health department. We are watching closely and constantly looking for updates. Please be assured that we are working closely with the San Mateo County 4-H office and the YMCA as well. We hope to give you updated information as it comes along. Again, we appreciate your patience and cooperation during this time. Thank you! 


Held at YMCA Camp Jones Gulch. San Mateo County 4-H camp seeks to promote an environment where children learn leadership, grow their personal self-confidence through trying new things, and feel part of a safe family - enduring themselves to the unique and special 4-H camp traditions.

San Mateo County 4-H Summer Camp offers a week of fun and excitement including swimming, boating, archery, arts & crafts, hiking, rock tower climbing, and both organized and group games. We have fun nightly recreation, which includes all campers in the activities, is a big hit, and facilitates positive youth interactions.

The friends and memories made at camp last a lifetime. 4-H offers hands-on, experiential learning activities to promote citizenship, leadership, and life skills. Throughout summer camp, each camper has the opportunity to become a leader by getting involved and potentially becoming camp staff! For those who do not want to become camp staff and move up in camp leadership; don’t worry – there is a lot of fun to be had for all!

Age requirement: Must be 9 yrs old to 19 yrs old by July 1 of the program year to participate.
