Virtual 4-H Summer Camp 2021

While we are disappointed that we won’t be hosting 4-H Summer Camp at Panhandle Lake this year, you can still have some camp fun at home!  We invite you to check out the VIRTUAL 4-H CAMP page at The page is filled with great camp traditions…say the 4-H pledge along with others, listen to the camp song playlist, gaze into a virtual campfire, and jump into art, cooking, and science activities. We can’t wait to see you back at Panhandle in 2022!

Panhandle Lake 4-H Camp

Campers have been enjoying the beauty of Panhandle Lake 4-H Camp for over 60 years! This outdoor paradise includes forest, wetlands, and facilities to accommodate camping programs, retreats, and natural resource education. A lodge, dining hall, dormitories, Yurt, equestrian facilities, and Adirondack style cabins make Panhandle an ideal location for recreation and education.
