What is 4-H Camp?
4-H Camp is an overnight camping program serving campers ages 9-13, supervised by teen counselors ages 14-18. Youth from Arlington, Alexandria and Fairfax camp together each year at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center in Front Royal, Virginia. This 5-day, 4-night program incorporates all of the favorite camp classics at an unbeatable price.
Every morning at camp, campers will rotate through camp classes featuring activities like canoeing, high ropes, leadership, outdoor living skills, yoga and more. There is free swim and recreation time each day, as well as evening programs and a roaring campfire.
Each camper will be a part of a "pack" which serves as the camper’s “family” during the week of camp. "Packs" will rotate through camp activities together and are involved in different contests on various days. Bear Claws are awarded for spirit, participation, and demonstrations of good character.
Adults Can Camp, Too!
We are always looking for adult volunteers to attend camp as chaperones. Adults camp for free and many employers offer up to two days of community service leave that you can take advantage of to come to camp. We prefer that volunteers commit to the full camp, but we may also be able to work out a modified schedule. If you are interested, please contact your local Extension office. We'd love to have you join the camp fun!
Scholarships Available for 4-H Camp
The 4-H Office offers scholarships each year for youth who would like to attend 4-H Camp but do not have the means to do so. Priority is given to applicants with the greatest need. The scholarship application will be posted to the camp website along with the application: https://sites.google.com/vt.edu/faacamp2021/home
Sponsoring a Camper
In the past, some parents and community members have generously decided to give the gift of 4-H Camp to youth who would otherwise not be able to afford it. If you are interested in helping send a child to camp, please contact your local 4-H Agent (see contact information above).
