Camp at MSU Tollgate Farm is a fun and enriching opportunity to experience the natural world hands-on. With 160 acres of beautiful farm and forest to explore, our camps offer the best in farm and food, discovery science, and natural resource exploration. We place significant value in the experiential model of "Do, Reflect, Apply", allowing campers to take the experience and relate it back to concepts learned in the classroom. In doing so, young people are empowered to be in charge of their own learning, instilling a passion for self-directed, life-long exploration. 


Check out what we have done at past camps at our blog:

MSU Extension Tollgate Farm Camps are a program of Michigan 4-H Youth Development. Registration for campers and stewards enrolls the youth as a 4-H Member in Oakland County. The required, one time participation fee of $20 is your 4-H member dues for the remainder of the 4-H year ending Aug. 31, 2018. After your camp registration is complete, please be sure to complete the online 4-H registration. Your online profile will collect all of the information that we require prior to your camper or steward attending camp. Once the online profile is complete, you will not be asked fill out any additional forms for the remainder of the 2018 camp season. 4-H Online may be found HERE.

4-H is a learn-by-doing, educational program, which helps youth, age 5 - 19, in their growth and development and compliments experiences received at home, school and other organizations. With the help of caring adult volunteers, 4-H helps young people gain the skills they need to be successful. As a member of 4-H, there are many other opportunities to get your youngster involved, including approximately 50 4-H clubs in Oakland County where members work with a large variety of project areas, including agriculture, aerospace, community service, horses, science and technology and more.
