The end of the school year is coming and for many area parents that means one thing: summer camps! There are dozens to choose from and each one offers a unique experience. Last year, “Favorite Summer Camp” was a hot category in our Family Favorites contest. For weeks, several of the camps were neck-and-neck. In the end, 4 -H Camp was our winner!
4-H is a global youth organization network whose focus is “To make the best better.” Per its website, “For more than 80 years, Virginia 4-H camping has been a proven and effective method of teaching youth life skills. Each year more than 17,000 youth participate in 4-H camping programs at Virginia’s six 4-H educational centers."
There are 4-H camps offered in King George, Stafford and Spotsylvania counties. Each camp is a four to five day program that offers several outdoor, team-building and educational experiences. All 4-H Camps are overnight.
For more information, visit the 4-H website and search for your location: http://4-h.org/find/
