Our Mission

Our mission at the Patuxent River 4-H Center Foundation is to provide a nurturing and inclusive environment where youth can connect with nature and discover the wonders of our environment. Through our broad range of educational opportunities and programs, we aim to raise awareness about environmental conservation, natural resources, water quality, and farming. We strive to inspire and empower young minds, instilling leadership, problem-solving skills, and fostering lifelong friendships. By offering outdoor education programs and summer camps, we aim to encourage children to connect with nature, cultivate a love for the outdoors, and become passionate advocates for our planet's future. Together, we can make a positive impact on the world around us.

"To raise a nature-bonded child is to raise a rebel, a dreamer, an innovator...

someone who will walk their own  verdant, winding path"
