Junior Summer Camp

Camp Overview

Junior 4-H Summer Camp is a week-long, residential summer camp program available to residents of York County and the City of Poquoson ages 9 to 13. Teens that are 14 can serve as Counselors-in-Training (CIT) during camp and teens ages 15-18 can serve as Teen Camp Counselors (see below for camp age policies and CIT/Counselor information). Camp is held every year at the Jamestown 4-H Educational Center in Williamsburg, VA.

Please note that the York/Poquoson Extension Office is in charge of planning for and processing registration for our week of 4-H Summer Camp. Jamestown 4-H Center is just the facility we use during the week for camp programming. Registration and/or questions regarding York/Poquoson's 4-H Summer Camp should be directed to the York/Poquoson Extension office at 757-890-4940, not the Jamestown 4-H Center.

Camp Benefits

4-H camp provides youth countless opportunities for learning more about themselves, their peers, and the natural world around them. Days are filled with camp classes, unstructured recreation and swim time, flag ceremonies, evening programs, and campfires. Our main focus during camp is to help youth develop independence, self-esteem, confidence, interpersonal skills, and other life skills.
