The sun is out, the days are longer and we are so excited to offer limited face-to-face programming this summer. Jackson’s Mill will allow pod camping for all 4-H participants. A plan to offer a brief overnight pod camping experience was developed under the guidance of the CDC and ACA Field Guide for Camps and was approved by the West Virginia University Health and Safety COVID-19 Task Force.
Monongalia County 4-H members will take a trip to Jackson’s Mill on July 14-16. Campers are responsible for their own transportation. Cost for a 4-H member is $135. Checks can be made to Monongalia County 4-H Leaders Association.
Financial assistance is available- contact Becca for more information.

Part of the National Cooperative Extension System
All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.
