Winter Teen 4-H weekends are an amazing experience where teens from different counties come together and have a fun weekend. Since the camp was founded in 1951, 4-H teen groups have come to enjoy the snow and each other’s company. Linda Horner, Cape May County 4-H Program Coordinator, said, “The camp is always a great experience for our 4-H teens. They have the opportunity to get away with their 4-H friends and make new friends with 4-H’ers from around the state while enjoying fun winter activities.”
4-H Youth Development Program is part of the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station and Rutgers Cooperative Extension. 4-H educational programs are offered to all youth, grades K-13, on an age-appropriate basis, without regard to race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, or disability.
