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 to welcome any youth organization (school, camping, religious, scouting, sporting, community) to utilize Camp Jekyll's beautiful new facilities for lodging, meeting space, recreation, and meal needs!
