Jekyll Island 4-H Center

UGA Cooperative Extension: Georgia 4-H

Georgia 4-H at Camp Jekyll

University of Georgia Extension/Georgia 4-H has been connecting children to Georgia's coastal environment on Jekyll Island 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. We are excited to partner with the Jekyll Island Authority with our new Camp Jekyll facilities!

Please see our program in action here:

  • The maximum bed capacity of the new facility will be 256; however, actual capacity will likely be lower and will depend on gender breakdown, adult/child ratio, and number of schools on-site.
