Welcome to our very first Virginia statewide 4-H Camp… Camp Across the Commonwealth! Due to COVID-19, and out of an abundance of caution for the sake of our campers, volunteers, camp staff, and Extension staff, all in-person day and residential camps were cancelled; however, this gives us an opportunity that we have never had before…to come together as a state and camp together from the comfort of our own homes! Each day we will feature a different 4-H Center, and we will have lots of fun activities and evening programs throughout the week. We can’t wait for this unique opportunity!

HENRICO JUNIOR 4-H RESIDENTIAL SUMMER CAMP CANCELED DUE TO COVID-19
We are sorry to inform you that all in person Virginia 4-H summer camps, both day and residential, have been canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic — including the Henrico Junior 4-H Camp at Jamestown 4-H Educational Center. The decision was made to help reduce the rate of infection in the state and flatten the curve. Though we are not able to hold camp this year, we remain committed to growing future leaders and educating youth in Henrico.
We have several virtual opportunities available to youth during this difficult time. Please like and follow our Henrico 4-H Facebook and Instagram pages “@Henrico4H” to stay updated on programming. Many of these are held via Zoom. If you are interested, please contact us for the links. Every Tuesday and Friday at 10 AM, we are hosting Henrico 4-H Head, Hearts, Hands, & Health Academy for youth of all ages. We are also hosting a Virtual Animal Show where youth can record themselves showing off their pet. Additionally, we are hosting an Interview Workshop Series and Contest and a Photography Expo. We will continue to post educational activities on our pages and share new opportunities as they arise.
Thank you for your understanding as we go through these unprecedented and challenging times together.
