Welcome to Nebraska 4-H Summer Camps! The summer programs offered at the Nebraska State 4-H Camp in Halsey provide all youth a place to discover, learn, and grow. Youth do not have to be a member of 4-H to attend one of our many summer camps. We believe strongly in promoting the mission of Nebraska 4-H, which encourages all young people to reach their full potential, by working and learning in partnership with caring adults. Amidst the beauty of the Nebraska National Forest, we are able to do what we do best: provide a life-changing summer camp experience for all youth! 4-H is education for life and focuses on helping young people explore science in their everyday lives, grow leadership and citizenship skills, explore future career opportunities, and make healthier decisions.

Nebraska 4-H Camps are American Camp Association (ACA) accredited, meaning that we care enough to undergo a thorough review of over 300 standards related to operations, staffing, and emergency management. We recruit an experienced and caring staff that receives training in first-aid/CPR, water safety, camping skills, and positive youth development. As directors, we share more than 50 years of combined experience in working with youth and continue to be leaders among our peers in the youth development field. Campers’ safety, security, health, and growth are our primary concerns. Nebraska 4-H Camps’ unparalleled, experienced leadership provides a well-supervised and supportive environment. We believe there is no better investment than your child attending camp! 4-H camp is a great place to meet new friends, try something for the first time, and to build cherished memories to last a lifetime!
