Extension opens registration for Henrico Junior 4-H summer camp

The Henrico County office of Virginia Cooperative Extension is accepting registrations for the 2020 Henrico Junior 4-H Camp, which will be Aug. 10-14 at the Jamestown 4-H Educational Center, near Williamsburg.

Open to boys and girls ages 9 through 14, the residential camp provides a fun learning environment to make friends and discover the outdoors through such activities as swimming, archery, sailing, canoeing, basketball, forestry, marine science, volleyball, shooting sports, fishing, campfires and crafts. The theme of this year’s camp is “Out of This World.”

Early registration is encouraged because many classes fill quickly. The $300 cost includes a T-shirt, lodging, meals, programs, class materials and transportation by chartered bus. Scholarship assistance may be available. Registration forms may be submitted by mail or in person at a registration event on Friday, March 27.

The registration event will be held from 3 to 6 p.m. in Extension’s demonstration kitchen on the second floor of the Henrico Human Services Building, 8600 Dixon Powers Drive.

The Jamestown 4-H Educational Center offers woods and open spaces along the James River as well as amenities that include air-conditioned lodges and cabins, archery and rifle ranges, a swimming pool, a river pier and an aquatics resource center.

Accredited by the American Camp Association, the camp is supervised by adult and teen counselors and a staff that includes lifeguards, recreational leaders, a dietician and a medical attendant. Parent volunteers are needed. For information, call (804) 501-5160 or go to henrico.us/extension.
