Looking to send your child to camp this summer?
We are pleased to be hosting several 4-H camps this summer! Camp Virgil Tate and West Virginia University are following all applicable health guidelines regarding illness prevention. As we continue to navigate this “new normal” together, camping may look different for every program. We appreciate your understanding during this time.
Please reach out to the contacts listed below to find summer 4-H opportunities for your camper.
Kanawha County 4-H
Contact: Jocelyn Crawford
Both younger and older camps happening simultaneously. There will be a few activities, assemblies, and classes and older and younger kids will do together through the week, but in general each group of campers will be doing their own thing.
Our 4-H camps will be going prehistoric with a dinosaur theme this year! We have lots of activities planned like a giant game of Jumanji, a visit from the WV Raptor Rehabilitation Center (https://www.facebook.com/WVRRC/), and a ton of cool classes like rockets, hiking, cooking, and fishing. We’ll be mixing in some new traditions, like a big opening-night Council Circle with both the older and younger campers together, and some old favorites, like the camp party. Another change is that while younger campers will be going home on Friday evening after Council Circle as usual, the older campers will be staying an extra night and will head home on Saturday after their final noon Council Circle.
If you have an active ZSuite account, you can go into ZSuite and search for Kanawha County Younger/ Older or Southern District Horse Camp to sign up. If you have not created a ZSuite account or you haven’t re-enrolled for this year, never fear! Everyone now has the option of registering as an external participant and it will take you through the process of completing all the forms & waivers you will need.
More information about each camp can be found on ZSuite. Once registered, you will receive a welcome packet with a sample camp schedule, a packing list, and more details. If you have any questions or problems registering, please get in touch with Jocelyn Crawford at the contact info listed above.

Southern District 4-H Horse Camp
Contact: Jocelyn Crawford
This camp is for campers 9 to 21 years of age. Southern District 4-H Horse Camp aims to provide children an environment in which to develop skills in a specific riding discipline. Emphasis is placed on educating participants in horsemanship/equitation and showmanship techniques. In order to attend 4-H Horse Camp, each camper is required to bring a horse to camp. Campers are responsible for getting their horse to and from camp and for the care of their horse during camp. Each camper must have A.S.T.M. approved protective headgear (helmet with secure chin strap) to wear when riding at camp. Campers are required to show a valid Coggins test report at the main gate before entering Horse Camp. NO COGGINS=NO CAMP. Reported test results are valid for 12 months. Horse Camp has limited space and can only accommodate 60 campers. Camper applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
