The Harford County 4-H camp is a unique, private non-profit organization run by a 13 member all-volunteer Camp Board, The Harford County 4-H Clubs, Inc.
Our camp is 100% self-funded and relies on income from events and fundraisers as well as the generosity from the public to continue to enrich the lives of young people and our community. It receives NO outside funding.
Our camp has been enriching lives for nearly a century. The current land of the 4-H camp was first transferred to Harford County 4-H Clubs, Inc. on July 9, 1925. This was the start of Harford County 4-H Camp at the Rocks and the first Harford County 4-H Camp was held that year. The camp is the oldest 4-H camp in Maryland and one of the oldest continuous use 4-H camps in the country.
