New Transportation Opportunities

For the 2022 Halifax County 4-H Summer Day Camp Season we will be implementing a modified transportation system. Each camp week we service two communities in Halifax county. The vans will pick up campers at each of the designated locations. Both pick-up and drop-off will be at the same location. This service is offered at no additional cost. Due to limited van seating, parents/guardians of campers will be required to register their camper in advance by calling or emailing. This is a new initiative and it is subject to adjustments that will be communicated accordingly with participating families. Please find our transportation rotation schedule below. 

Call or email to reserve a transportation spot! Our number is 252-583-5161 or email

Parents/guardians can email, scan or drop off the signed Parent/Guardian Transportation Agreement Our office address is 359 Ferrell Ln. Halifax, NC 27839. Emailed or scanned documents can be sent to
