Camp is an opportunity to make new friends, learn, and have fun in a safe environment while surrounded by caring adults.  Campers learn life skills such as independence, responsibility, and sharing.

A study of Virginia 4-H camping conducted in 2002 with 11,000 youth campers ages 9 to 13 from across the state found that 4-H camp participation helped youth to learn to:

  • Make new friends,
  • Develop new skills, and
  • Become more independent and able to take care of themselves.

Shenandoah County 4-H offers a summer and a winter 4-H residential camp at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center and Summer 4-H Day Camps are also conducted in cooperation with local town parks.  Additional 4-H speciality camps are available at 4-H Centers and other locations around the state.

There are leadership opportunities available for teens to be trained to serve as 4-H Camp Counselors for all of the Shenandoah County 4-H Camps.

The Culpeper-Shenandoah-Rappahannock-Spotsylvania 4-H Camp will be held the week of June 23-27, 2019, for Shenandoah County youth ages 9-13. This is a resident camp, held at the Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center in Front Royal, which is an American Camping Association Accredited Camp. Campers do not have to be 4-H members to enroll. Camp activities include swimming, canoeing, crafts, performing arts, riflery, archery, games, and campfire programs. Campers are supervised by trained 4-H Teen Camp Counselors, adult 4-H volunteers and the 4-H Center Summer Resident Camp staff.
