Centrally located in Monticello, Illinois — 4-H Memorial Camp offers traditional and innovative programs, professional staff, and comfortable facilities.

Operated by the University of Illinois Extension, summer youth camp is open to all youth ages 8—16 years.

Following with the 4-H mission to foster positive youth development through a “learn-by-doing” philosophy, campers experience a five-day, four-night camp full of activities and learning. Swimming, boating, hiking, arts & crafts, fishing, singing, volleyball and softball await.    

4-H Memorial Camp is accredited through the standards of the American Camping Association and exceeds their requirements for the proper administration, personnel, program, health care, and aquatics of a residential camp.

Six summer youth camps will be operated between June 5 and July 21.  

Woodford County’s designated week is June 12-16, however, youth may attend other weeks by registering directly through 4-H Memorial Camp. Fees for attending the five day/four night camp are $175 with sibling discounts available. Discounts are also available for 4-H members attending Woodford County’s designated week.

A special camp for new campers or younger kids will also be held June 2-4.  Cost of this Mini-Camp Program is $120.
