Why do we camp in Tennessee 4-H? Because it is A Powerful Positive Force in Youth Development!
4-H members who attend camp:
- Become more confident and experience increased self esteem
- Develop more social skills
- Grow more independent and show more leadership
- Become more adventurous and willing to try new things
- Give teens an opportunity to increase their leadership skills
- Provide an opportunity for youth to belong
- Give youth opportunities to increase knowledge and skills by learning from caring adults and teens
- Provide fun activities where youth can apply their new knowledge and skills
- Generate confidence in youth by recognizing them for their participation
So this year, let’s get as many of our Tennessee youth to camp as possible. It will be a life changing event!
