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
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:
