The Center operates several camp sessions throughout the summer. Youth participate in many of the traditional 4-H camping programs, day camps or attend one of the specialty camps - cloverbud camp, marine science and sailing, camp canvasback, the adventure program or take off 4-Health. Activities include arts & crafts, canoeing & kayaking, compass & orienteering, ecology, fishing & crabbing, outdoor living skills, shooting sports, swimming, team building & climbing wall, and other team recreational sports. Campers do not have to be 4-H members to attend. The Eastern 4-H Center is accrediated by the American Camp Association and owned by NC State University.
