COVID-19 Update

Since Wednesday, August 4, 2021, face masks were once again inside Camden County Government facilities. Following guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), masks are recommended indoors in areas of high transmission, like Camden County, to maximize protection from the Delta variant and to prevent possibly spreading it to others.

Mission of Extension

We deliver lifelong learning across the state through science-based programs and education in agriculture and the environment, family well-being, and 4-H youth.

University of Georgia Cooperative Extension faculty and staff are tackling some of the state’s and world’s grand challenges - from combating diseases and securing a safe food supply to strengthening families, communities and economic growth. We deliver programs through three main program areas:  Agriculture and Natural Resources (ANR), 4-H and youth programming and development, Food, Health and Families (FACS – Family and Consumer Sciences).

The Camden County Extension Office Offers a Variety of Resources to Our Community.
