family around a campfire

Each time we host a series of Empowering Youth and Families Program (EYFP) classes, participating families have the opportunity to spend a weekend at one of our 4-H camps. This weekend encourages continued family engagement and gives families the chance to experience camp together. Over the years, we’ve realized this is something many families have never been able to do. 

May 20-22, we will be heading to the Millstone 4-H Camp in Ellerbe, NC. Families will stay in rustic cabins, enjoy s’mores around the campfire, and enjoy meals provided by the camp. All of this is available to participants at no cost. On top of the perks mentioned above, the property at Millstone features many other activities for families, including:

  • Canoeing and Kayaking
  • Crafts
  • Swimming
  • Hiking
  • Field Games
  • Ropes Courses
  • Shooting Sports (archery, riflery, and shotguns)
  • And Much More!

In addition to enhancing family bonds at camp, families work together to brainstorm a community action plan. These action plans outline an educational event focused on one of our curriculum topics. EYFP county groups will continue meeting beyond the camp weekend to refine their idea and host a county-wide event. We have hosted many events throughout our time with the Empowering Youth and Families Program. Each event has been unique and made a positive impact on the community.

Our family camp weekend is one of the best parts of the program. It allows families to experience the entire curriculum in a few days and share their successes and struggles with other participants. Families will get to do all these things while creating memories they can take with them for a lifetime.
