General Information about the EE program

The Georgia 4-H Environmental Education Program at Camp Jekyll is administered by UGA Extension on Jekyll Island. Camp Jekyll is located on 10 acres on the south end of Jekyll Island, Georgia between the beach and maritime forest and uses the entire island as an outdoor classroom. Jekyll Island State Park is operated by the Jekyll Island Authority. During the 2013-2014 school year, more than 12,000 students enjoyed our day and residential environmental education programs. All education groups are welcome including public, private, religious, Montessori, homeschool, and scouting groups.
