The Lindley G. Cook 4-H Youth Center for Outdoor Education, operating since 1951, was named for a director of Extension who realized the vision of a 4-H camp in New Jersey. The camp is located within Stokes State Forest on 100 wooded acres in Sussex County. It includes accommodations for 215 people, recreation fields, and an 8-acre lake for fishing, swimming, and boating.
Founded in 1983 by Dr. David A. Feigley, the Youth Sports Research Council is a division of the Department of Kinesiology and Health at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey.
