Junior 4-H Summer Camp is a weeklong, residential summer camp program available to Northampton County residents ages 9-13. Teens ages 13 and 14 can serve as Counselors-in-Training (CIT) during camp and teens ages 14-19 can serve as Teen Camp Counselors (see below for camp age policies and CIT/Counselor information). Camp is at the Airfield 4-H Center in Wakefield, VA and will be held July 31- August 4, 2017.
4-H camp provides youth countless opportunities for learning more about themselves, their peers, and the natural world around them. Days are filled with camp classes, unstructured recreation and swim time, flag ceremonies, evening programs, and campfires. Our focus during camp is to help youth develop independence, self-esteem, confidence, interpersonal skills, and other life skills.
The classes and evening activities offered at camp vary from year to year. Example classes include swimming, archery, rifle, canoeing, low ropes course, robotics, videography, cooking, art and crafts, outdoor living skills, and marine science. Youth will select the classes that they are most interested in on the first day of camp. Evening activities may include outdoor games, carnival games, a pool party, a dance, a talent show, movies, etc. We try to make sure there is something for everyone at camp!
