NC 4-H Camps Vision, Values and Goals

For more than 80 years, North Carolina 4-H camping has taught youth life skills through centers located from the mountains to the sandhills to the coast. Each year, more than 7,000 youth from across the state participate in 4-H camping programs at North Carolina’s 4-H educational centers. Thousands more participate in conferences, school enrichment programs, special events, and workshops.

It is our vision to inspire and create productive citizens through lifelong learning opportunities that promote diversity & inclusion for all.

Our Core Values are:

  • Caring – We care for each other and for those we serve.
  • Efficiency – We seek ways to maximize efficiency and minimize waste.
  • Inclusiveness – We are inclusive and accepting of everyone.
  • Integrity – We seek to do the right thing.
  • Respect – We respect each other and everyone else.
  • Stewardship – We strive to be good stewards of all of our resources.
