Camps

The Santa Rosa County 4-H program offers several camping opportunities for youth. We have both local day camps as well as overnight (residential) camps. Many of our overnight camps take place at the Timpoochee 4-H Center in Niceville, FL. Other overnight events, such as Legislature and Congress, take place on college campuses.
