Registration for our 2019 Camp is now closed. We will begin registration for the 2020 Camp in winter.
Information about FAA 4-H Camp:
4-H Junior Camp is held at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational and Conference Center in Front Royal, Virginia. Campers ages 9-13 are lodged in a room with campers of similar age, and have the opportunity to request their roommates. Each room is part of a Pack, which serves as the camper’s “family” during the week of camp. Packs are involved in different contests on various days and Bear Claws are awarded for spirit, participation, and demonstrations of good character.
Each day, campers go to three different classes that they sign up for prior to arriving at camp. Class options include archery, canoeing, adventure, high and low ropes, t-shirt art, yoga, and more. There is free swim and recreation time each day, as well as evening programs and a campfire. Past evening programs have included Water Olympics, Newspaper Fashion Show, Talent Shows, and Scavenger Hunts.
Our camper registration fee is $350 which includes lodging, meals, all camp activities and supplies, a t-shirt, and transportation back from camp. Families must provide transportation (or carpool) to get youth to camp on June 30th.
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.
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).
Check back here in winter for information about our 2020 Camp!
