Chaperone supply will not be mandatory due to the nature of this camping format, in which county instructors serve in the dual role of counselor. Should volunteers elect to accompany campers, they must be registered as camp counselors and fully vetted through their individual county affiliation. All camp volunteers are fully vetted through WVU Extension Service 4-H.
Campers are not to bring equipment beyond approved personal safety equipment, i.e., safety glasses and hearing protection. This is NOT a competition! Be sure personal property is personally identified in some manner. Do not bring valuables! These are not the responsibility of the Shooting Sports Camp. In 2018, the only exception is the inclusion of the advanced archery section which encourages 4-H’ers to bring their personal archery equipment for use in this specific class section.
