Come Camping with 4-H!

Youth from Hamilton County attend 4-H Camp Graham for one week of outdoor fun in the summer.   

Camp Graham is a great place for youth to learn skills that prepare them to lead into the future. The unique setting helps youth develop valuable skills such as self-confidence, leadership, decision making, communication, cooperation and respect for others...just to name a few. These life4-H Camp Graham Sign skills are taught while participating in nature sessions, navigating a canoe with a new friend, concentrating on a team building challenge and even bunking in a cabin. 

4-H Camp Graham is located on 70 acres of rolling woodlands along the Todd's Fork in southwestern Ohio. The goal of Camp Graham is to provide a safe, rustic woodland environment where youth develop life skills through hands-on educational programs, while making friendships that last a lifetime. 


4-H Camp 2024 

Dates: June 12-15

Campers aged 9-14 are invited to camp at 4-H Camp Graham.
