4H Specialty Camps in Jamestown
June 23-24; July 28-29
This 1-day, overnight camp introduces youth ages 5-8 to the overnight camping experience. No previous experience in 4-H is necessary. These programs provide educational and recreational opportunities that are age-appropriate and supervised by Teen Leaders, Adult Volunteers, 4-H Center Camp Staff, as well as Extension Agents and the 4-H Center Program Director. Cloverbud camps are typically held multiple times through-out the year. Campers at this age are full of energy and creativity and we facilitate age-appropriate activities that encourage positive growth and leadership while introducing them to the Camp experience.

Teen Weekend is dedicated to the teens through-out the Southeast district of Virginia that volunteer their time and leadership skills to so many campers. Although 4-H membership is not necessary, leadership and 4-H curriculum will be covered. The schedule allows for the teens to participate in classes and recreation time while including social time with their peers as well. Teens are directly involved with their peers and the staff while having a fun, educational, and safe experience at the 4-H Center.
