The Eastern 4-H Center partners with the North Carolina Wildlife Resource Commission to offer this camp. This is a program that encourages and educates young hunters on waterfowl conservation. Campers participate in activities that help them understand waterfowl biology, wetland ecology, hunting techniques, and other conservation practices.
The camp consists of a multi-year tract, with campers progressing to the next tract the following year to build on previously learned skills. You can start this camp at any time between the ages of 10 – 17 and also graduate to the “vet” status by having proof of your hunter and boater safety courses that are offered by the NC Wildlife Resource Commission. Skills taught during Camp Canvasback include shotgun safety, shooting & firearm care, waterfowl identification, duck blind construction, boat & water safety, and first aid.
Check-in is at 2:00 pm on Sunday and Check-out is at 10:00 am on Friday. Groups and activities are facilitated by professionally trained camp counselors and program instructors. 4-H Camp is always open to everyone; youth do NOT need to be members of 4-H to participate.
