All the resources will be available at no cost, however if it is on your heart to buy a t-shirt ($20 each) or donate please do so. It is not required but any donations will be greatly appreciated. You can register each camper, teen, or adult for one week or all ten weeks but please register so we can send you links for specific programs like campfires, talent shows, etc. Each week we are offering crafts, we are working with a local small business (DA Designs) to share those crafts with you. To see more information about what is included in each week's craft kit and to purchase them click here!

How do youth benefit from 4-H camping?
Youth have the opportunity to learn and have fun in a safe environment while surrounded by caring adults.
A study of Virginia 4-H camping conducted in 2002 with 11,000 youth campers ages 9 to 13 from across the state found that 4-H camp participation helped youth to learn to:
- Make new friends
- Develop new skills
- Become more independent and able to take care of themselves
A study of 363 parents/guardians of Virginia 4-H campers conducted in 2001 found that 4-H camp participation changed youths’ behaviors in the areas of:
- Taking care of their own things (self-responsibility)
- Becoming more independent/taking initiative
