Did you know?

As early as October 2020, the NC 4-H Camp Team began to work on Covid-19 policies, procedures, and

 guidelines using information from the CDC, the ACA (American Camp Association), and NC State University.

The diligence and hard work paid off because all three camps in the NC 4-H Camp system operated very safe

and successful camps during the 2021 season. For that reason and the fact that we're all still dealing with Covid-19,

the NC 4-H Camp Team has decided to continue with the 2021 guidelines.

As we all acknowledge that this situation continues to change,  CLICK HERE for the latest updates.


Welcome to the Eastern 4-H Center

From meetings and conferences, corporate retreats and team building programs to banquets and receptions, our exceptional facility, beautiful setting, recreational opportunities and highly qualified staff are here to help you "make the best better". Design and implement your own program with your materials and staff, or let us help you with planning, materials, and expert instructors.

The Eastern 4-H Center opened in May of 2001 with appropriated funding by the state of North Carolina and significant contributions from corporations, foundations and individuals across the state. The Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University and administered within the system of NC 4-H Camps in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences .

PLEASE NOTE - You do not have to be a member of 4-H to rent the facility or participate in camps.
Our Mission
The mission of the Center is to provide year-round training and education that promotes lifelong learning through outdoor educational and recreation programs for all.

The Center’s staff is dedicated to providing every participant an opportunity to feel accepted, valued and cared about as a member of the community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to inspire and create productive citizens through lifelong learning opportunities that promote diversity and inclusion for all.

Our corporate programs and community opportunities extend the use of this outstanding facility and dedicated staff to the entire community.

Whether you’re planning a retreat or business meeting, learning to sail, dropping 40 feet on the giant swing, kayaking up Maybelle Creek or sharing talents around an evening campfire, the focus of our program is on helping you learn to solve problems, be creative, live and work in a caring community.
