Teen Counselors Wanted!

Being a teen Counselor for 4-H camp is a great way to develop leadership skills, learn more about your strengths, make new friends, have LOTS of fun, and – bonus – even help fulfill community service hours for graduation. Whether you have been to 4-H Camp, another camp, or no camp at all, we want you to apply. 

We have an upcoming 4-H Teen Counselor Open House on Monday, November 30th from 12:00-1:00. Teens (ages 14-18) living in Arlington, Alexandria, or Fairfax are all welcome to join via Zoom!

At the event our teen club will share information about our annual 4-H Summer Camp and all the reasons why teens should consider applying to serve as a 4-H Camp Counselor this year. Beyond planning 4-H Camp, our teen club is an amazing group of young people who meet weekly (Mondays from 12-1) for teambuilding, to play games, and engage in other projects throughout the year. Register for the event here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/4-h-teen-open-house-tickets-128262288959

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 Junior 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 this page when ready.

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).

Thank you to everyone who made 4-H Virtual Camp a reality! We hope to return to in-person camp next summer. In the meantime, check out our 4-H At Home page for more 4-H fun.

4-H Emergency Relief Fund

We are pleased to be able to offer this Virtual 4-H Camp at no-cost to participants. Camp provides the full benefits of a 4‑H experience coupled with the fun and wonder of group camping at one of our six 4-H Educational Centers. Preserving this experience is vital for future campers and we ask for your investment today in current operations, at the Northern Virginia 4-H Center, to ensure our legacy continues in years to come.

We appreciate your consideration and look forward to seeing you at camp!!
