We are excited to announce the second annual Betsy’s Bash, a celebration and fundraising event at the Betsy-Jeff Penn 4-H Center on Saturday, May 18, 2024 from 4:00 - 8:00 pm. This next gathering of Penn’s Pals will be a celebration of the legacy and impact the center has had on countless generations of youth, staff, and families since Mrs. Betsy first opened the doors in 1964. This year is also the 60th anniversary, so it promises to be a truly spectacular gathering of friends, family and community. Mrs. Betsy’s vision of a camp focused solely on the health, wellbeing, and education of the youth of North Carolina has carried the center from 1964 to the present, ensuring the positive and transformative impact of the camp experience on thousands of children.
We hope this celebration will become a pillar of the Rockingham County community for years to come, demonstrating the deep impacts of the Penns’ dream to make a difference in the lives of North Carolinians, one child at a time. Serving over 7,000 youth every year through educational programs and summer camp, the Penn 4-H Center stands as one of the leading youth development centers in the state of North Carolina.
