4-H Summer Camp Scholarships

The Alabama 4H Foundation, along with the generosity of others, awards financial scholarships to campers throughout the state.  The 2023 camp fee for a two night/three-day session is $150.00 per camper.  While we do everything possible to keep these rates low, the rising costs of operating a facility and program like 4-H Camp continue to climb.  These rates often create a hardship for families, which is only alleviated by our camp scholarship endowments and annual camp scholarship fund.  Through each of these opportunities, young people have the opportunity to experience an amazing summer camp that otherwise would not be available to them.

Over 300 youth received scholarships in 2022 and participated in a wide variety of educational and recreational activities offered at 4-H Summer Camp.  They developed important life skills ranging from time management and self-confidence, to increasing personal responsibility and personal health and wellbeing.

If you are interested in applying for a financial scholarship, please fill out a scholarship application below or speak to your county 4-H Regional Extension Agent. All Camp scholarship applications are due March 1, 2023.
