HEALTH AND SAFETY
Children are at less risk at camp where they have a sense of community, develop intergenerational relationships, and learn through first-hand experiences.
4-H values people. The moments that result in the camp experience repeatedly express the value of people. We demonstrate that value through respect, honesty, caring, and sharing. Through the camp experience, young people learn to understand the strength of mankind. They also develop an appreciation for the qualities required to protect the fragile relationships needed to protect these relationships.
Trained, caring adult role models help children feel loved, capable, and included. Camp helps children grow by providing a supervised, positive environment that has safety as a primary commitment.
For years, campers’ parents have reported that when their children return home from camp they are more caring, understand the importance of giving, are more equipped to stand up for what they know is right, and are willing to be more responsible. These are the qualities that achieve the 4-H mission of developing healthy productive citizens will help
Camp provides children with a community of caring adults, who nurture experiential education that results in self-respect and appreciation for human value. All of the outcomes-self-identity, self-worth, self-
esteem, leadership, and self-respect – build personal competencies.
4-H camping teaches youth to make their own decisions, solve problems, and manage their resources without the help of family. Through involvement in the 4-H camping program, youth gain a better appreciation of family members by learning how to become more responsible. Campers and parents of campers also learn to better appreciate each other.
INDEPENDENT LIVING SKILLS
Camp prepares youth for life transitions, reinforces life lessons learned at home, and prepares youth for independent living. It was stated that “parents specifically reported increases in developmental outcomes like resilience, cooperation, communication, critical thinking, and decision-making – skills closely mapped to ’21st Century Skills’ that employers have identified as important for future workforce success.”
4-H values a sense of contribution. The benefits of our work are both immediate and slow to emerge. Most significantly, although the experience itself is often fleeting, our impact on the human spirit lasts a lifetime. Children who attend camp develop connections with the world.
