Camping

Camping Project

Redwood 4-H is once again offering an overnight camping project. This year there will be two camping events each preceded by a planning meeting in which the members will learn about the necessary preparation for a successful camping trip, and will plan both their meals and recreation activities. 


The first camping event will be on Oct 20-22.

The second camping event will be in March


The planning meetings will be scheduled at about two weeks before each trip. Meeting times will be decided according to the availability of the members enrolled in the project. 


Project requirements:

The camping project is open to members of all ages. Primary members ages 8 and younger must have an adult chaperone at planning meetings. Syblings and parents/gaurdians are welcome to join us on the camping trip. 


All participants are responsible to bring basic camping gear: a tent, a sleeping pad, and a sleeping bag or blankets. If you don’t have the equipment, please contact the project leader. 

Ages: 5-18

Limit: no max

Cost: The costs for campsite facilities, firewood and food will be split among the participants attending each camping trip.

Camping Project

Youth will learn what to bring camping and how to meal plan for a large group. Youth will learn dutch oven cooking, campfire cooking, how to set up a tent, and how to build a fire. They will also come up with fun outdoor activities to do over the weekend camping trip.


We will have a planning meeting before our first trip for youth to meal plan, create a packing list and determine what activities they will do. Second camping trip will be in March in Half Moon Bay.
