Camp Rankin is the 4-H provincial summer camp located in Richmond County, Cape Breton. Every year, senior 4-H members (16 or older, by July) are hired to work at the camp as counsellors supervising 4-H members aged 9 to 15 from all across Nova Scotia. The five one-week camps start in July and end the first week of August.

Camp Rankin originated 33 years ago as a Centennial Project of Richmond County 4-H Leaders' Council and is owned and operated by this group. Camp Rankin is the first 4-H camp to be built in Atlantic Canada. 4-H members between the ages of nine to fifteen spend six fun-filled days with fellow 4-H'ers. There are a variety of educational activities for campers. In addition, 4- H'ers are responsible for housekeeping chores. Each day ends with a chapel service by the camp- fire, sing-song, and lunch.
