Honor Club has a history of close connections with the 4-H Camps in North Carolina, and has been involved with many different service projects to help keep up the camping centers and provide valuable camp opportunities for youth across the state. This page will stay updated with current involvement opportunities at Betsy-Jeff Penn, Millstone 4-H Camp, and the Eastern 4-H Center, so be sure to check often for updates!


Betsy-Jeff Penn Service Opportunity: Saturday, October 6, 2018

Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Educational Center is currently working on replacing the fencing around the historic Pioneer site and are looking for service-minded 4-H volunteers to assist in removing the current fence on Saturday, October 6th.

This will be an all-day project that takes place at Betsy-Jeff Penn, located at 804 Cedar Lane, Reidsville, NC 27320. The project involves removing the old 280-ft long split-rail fence and replacing it with rough-cut treated boards that will last longer. The project will be split up over several days in the fall, and Honor Club members are needed to make the project happen!

Cabins will be available on Saturday evening for those helping with the project who need overnight lodging.

For more information, contact Jeff Johnson at jljohnso@ncsu.edu.







The new fence will look like the photo below. We hope you’ll come out to be a part of this service project!

Pickin’ in the Pines: Saturday, October 20, 2018

You’re invited to join North Carolina 4-H at Millstone 4-H Camp for a night of fun, food, and bluegrass at the second Pickin’ in the Pines Bluegrass and BBQ Benefit Concert in the beautiful Ellerbe, North Carolina! Featuring world-class bluegrass acts Flatt Lonesome, Long Gone Bluegrass, and Lauren & Lane, this adult-only event provides scholarships for North Carolina youth to attend summer camp at Millstone. Bring your camp chairs and a love of bluegrass for an evening of LIVE music, pig pickin’, hors d’oeuvres, and a live auction!

Last year’s inaugural event raised enough funding to provide scholarships for 28 youth from across the state of North Carolina to attend 4-H camp in 2018. There are few tools as powerful as the camp experience to positively change the lives of young people. Support the youth of North Carolina and attend Pickin’ in the Pines 2018!
