Our History & Mission


4-H Camp Pioneer is the local 4-H camp serving Randolph County and surrounding areas. Randolph County has a unique historical connection with the national 4-H organization that goes back to the very origin of 4-H in the United States. In 1915, the first organized 4-H camp in the world was held on a farm in southern Randolph County, just south of the current camp location. That first 4-H camp, “Camp Good Luck”, was followed by years of camps around the county. In 1952, 4-H Camp Pioneer became the permanent site for 4-H camps in Randolph County

Since those early years of tents and Quonset huts, 4-H Camp Pioneer has grown into a multi-use facility for the community and surrounding counties, while maintaining its original objective as part of the 4-H program. 4-H Camp Pioneer strives to promote positive youth development and a family-oriented center for the community.


Camp Pioneer exists to provide a quality multi-use recreational facility for the use of citizens of Randolph County, particularly the Randolph County 4-H program.
