Each year, Wake County 4-H hosts free and/or affordable camps for 4-H members of all ages. This year, we brought back many of our favorite programs for a variety of interests from cooking to drones! 

As Summer 2023 comes to a close, Wake County 4-H sends a HUGE THANK YOU to all of our 4-H members, volunteers, parents, and staff for another successful and memorable season.
