Cost & How to Apply

Registration is now open! 

The 2024 is $500.00.   The fee includes meals and snacks, lodging, a T-shirt, and program and activity fees. Donors to the Michigan 4-H Foundation, Michigan Sea Grant Extension and MSU Extension generously offset about 25 percent of the real camper cost! 

A limited number of state 4-H scholarships are offered for teens with financial need. 4-H members can also contact your county MSU Extension office to see if local scholarships may be available.

Full payment is due when registering. If you have a scholarship, please pay in full and have the scholarship source reimburse you directly.  Beginning June 5, wait-listed applicants will be offered spaces forfeited by campers who failed to meet the deadline.

You don't have to be a member of 4-H to attend, however you will be asked to enroll in 4-H Online to sign permission and medical forms. 


Please email if you have any questions!
