2014 Summer Camp Information
Given the uncertainty of the construction schedule and availability of bed space this summer with the construction of the new Jekyll Island Youth and Learning Center by the Jekyll Island Authority, the decision was made by Georgia 4-H not to hold 4-H summer camp on Jekyll Island in June and July of 2014. Changing the camp assignment schedule to accommodate plans to rebuild the center means the sooner work starts, the sooner Georgia 4-H will be back camping at a this new facility on Jekyll Island.
