The West Virginia 4-H Camping Program has provided youths with opportunities for four-fold life development (head, heart, hands, health) through cooperative group living in the natural environment since 1915. While society and our organization have changed since those early days, the emphasis on a camper-focused educational experience has remained an integral part of the West Virginia 4-H Camping Program at state and county levels. 4-H camping is one of the cornerstones of WVU Extension and is a “point of pride” for which the state 4-H program is known nationally.
West Virginia has many opportunities for youth ages 9 through 21 to have fun, make friends and learn at camp through WVU Extension’s 4-H program – the camping experts!
4-H camps are offered in every West Virginia County. Contact your local county office to learn more about camping options in your area.
In addition to county camps, the state 4-H program offers the following state camps:
