The North Dakota 4-H Camp is on 80 acres of wooded riverfront property 1.5 miles west of Washburn, N.D., and has provided overnight camping to youth for over 50 years. The camp is located between the Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and historic Fort Mandan along the Missouri River.


Our facilities include a main dining hall, an educational center with showering facilities, Butler Outpost multipurpose building and three sleeping cabins. The camp has walking trails along the Missouri River and lots of open spaces to enjoy.

Staff and Activities

Our staff members are trained in outdoor skills, science, agriculture, and human development to work with youth to ensure a high-quality experience for campers.

In addition to the planned education program, recreational opportunities are included for each camp. Campers enjoy many activities, including our walking trails, mud pit, and archery. Campers especially like the Dutch oven cooking, evening campfires, waterslide, and a dance. New to camp this year is the 4-H Pond where campers can enjoy fishing, swimming and canoeing.

Camps begin with check-in at 4 p.m. Central time and end at 11 a.m. Central time unless otherwise stated.
