Jekyll Island 4-H Center

UGA Cooperative Extension: Georgia 4-H

Jekyll Island 4-H Center

The Jekyll Island 4-H Center has been connecting children to Georgia's coastal environment since 1983. We now reach more than 13,000 people each year through our Environmental Education Program and Summer Camp Program, using hands-on techniques to engage young minds.

Important Facility/Program Update

Starting July 2014, Georgia 4-H embarked on a new partnership with the Jekyll Island Authority that will improve, renovate, and expand the facilities that have served since 1983 as the Jekyll Island 4-H Center. Due to the constraints of the construction/renovations that will be spreading across the entire campus, the Jekyll Island 4-H Center will have to suspend our Environmental Education and Summer Camping Programs in December 2014 and will have to close in January 2015. A new facility, the Jekyll Island Youth and Learning Center, will serve as the new home for Georgia 4-H programming on Jekyll Island and is targeting a fall 2016 completion date. Georgia 4-H looks forward to returning to these new updated facilities to continue offering students our same great environmental education field studies and summer camp fun.
