    4-H Youth Summer Camp

 

 

Horseback riding, fishing, swimming, archery, campfires and a Ropes challenge course are just a few of the activities young people ages 8‑16 enjoy while visiting the H. S. Estelle 4‑H & Youth Camp.  The camp was established in 1972 and is owned and operated by the Cooperative Extension Program at Prairie View A&M University.  The camp is located in Huntsville, Texas.

The camp sits on 53 acres and provides an array of amenities and facilities including six air conditioned cabins, conference room, large dining hall, swimming pool, picnic area, open pavilion, and a Ropes challenge course that offers ten low elements and five high elements. A three‑acre lake stocked with catfish and sunfish is also on the property.

The H.S. Estelle 4‑H & Youth Camp is designed to introduce youth, primarily those who have not had the opportunity to participate in a traditional camp, to living independently, meet new friends and explore nature.  Youth from various parts of the state attend and do not have to belong to a 4‑H club to participate in camp. 

While at the camp, youth enjoy social development activities designed for relaxation and interaction with one another. Campers are divided into eight groups of four depending on age and gender.
