4-H Summer Camp

Summer 2021 at Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Camp!

Campers around a campfire

Tyrrell County 4-H will be camping at BJP this year, June 27–July 2. Camp will look a little different this year but we are excited to get back TOGETHER!

To RESERVE your spot, you must contact the Extension Office and pay the $50 non-refundable deposit. A spot will not be held until the deposit is paid.

What About COVID-19?

Camps are taking every precaution to prevent the spread of the virus. Many camps were able to successfully operate last summer and we are making every effort to do so this year.

Agents/Campers/Staff/Volunteers Before Camp

  • Transportation guidelines will be provided by the university (forthcoming).
  • Agents will collect documentation (negative COVID-19 test or temperature record) on campers before they load transportation; Agents will conduct temperature checks before youth load transportation and depart to camp.
  • All campers/staff/agents/volunteers are required to submit negative COVID-19 test documentation within 5 days prior to coming to camp. The test must be conducted and come back negative within a 5-day window prior to coming to camp, OR (for those that can’t get a test for whatever reason), they must self-quarantine for 7 to 10 days prior to coming to camp. During that time, they are required to keep a daily record of temperature checks which they will submit to their Agent or the camp before arrival.

More guidelines will be available as we get closer to the camping season.

Specific guidelines from B-JP

Refund Policy

  • If the university makes the decision to cancel camp, refunds will be provided. Otherwise, there is no change to the standing policy. The current policy allows for documented medical issues, minus the deposit.
