4-H summer programs provide all youth a place to discover, learn and grow. These programs strongly promote the mission of Virginia 4-H, which encourages all young people to reach their full potential by working and learning in partnership with caring adults. Experienced leaders provide a well-supervised and supportive environment. They believe there is no better investment than your child attending camp. No matter which 4-H camp your child goes to, camp is a great place to meet new friends, to try something new, and to build cherished memories that last a lifetime. If you have any questions call the Buckingham Extension Office at (434) 969-4261. Financial aid is available for families in need.
