Welcome to the Eastern 4-H Center

From meetings and conferences, corporate retreats and team building programs to banquets and receptions, our exceptional facility, beautiful setting, recreational opportunities and highly qualified staff are here to help you "make the best better". Design and implement your own program with your materials and staff, or let us help you with planning, materials, and expert instructors.

The Eastern 4-H Center opened in May of 2001 with appropriated funding by the state of North Carolina and significant contributions from corporations, foundations and individuals across the state. The Eastern 4-H Center is owned and operated by NC State University and administered within the system of NC 4-H Camps in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences .

PLEASE NOTE - You do not have to be a member of 4-H to rent the facility or participate in camps.
Our Mission
The mission of the Center is to provide year-round training and educational programs for: youth, community groups, business and corporate sector and University students and faculty.

The Center’s staff is dedicated to providing every participant an opportunity to feel accepted, valued and cared about as a member of the community. Creating friendships and a sense of safety are as important to us as the activities we teach. Our vision is to establish an enjoyable and exciting program that contributes to the development of each participant’s character.

Our corporate programs and community opportunities extend the use of this outstanding facility and dedicated staff to the entire community.

Whether you’re planning a retreat or business meeting, learning to sail, dropping 40 feet on the giant swing, kayaking up Maybelle Creek or sharing talents around an evening campfire, the focus of our program is on helping you learn to solve problems, be creative, live and work in a caring community.
