Tennessee youth have the opportunity to participate in one of the largest 4-H organizations in the nation. Operated by University of Tennessee Extension, 4-H teaches leadership, citizenship and life skills to more than 190,000 Tennessee youth in grades 4-12. 4-H also has more than 6,000 adult volunteers.

From health to public speaking, from wildlife to photography, 4-H brings tomorrow's world to today's youth, and encourages advanced education. Tennessee 4-H clubs have continually produced national winners in project competition. Find more information about the state’s 4-H program online here: http://4h.tennessee.edu/

Tennessee 4-H operates three 4-H Centers located throughout the state, and each site offers a wide variety of summer camping experiences. The list includes: kayaking, swimming, electricity, wildlife, archery, fishing, hiking, rafting, ecology, photography, crafts, canoeing, talent shows, drama, soccer, softball, basketball, volleyball, low ropes, cookouts, and more. From electric camp to shooting sports, 4-H offers a little something for practically every interest.
