2014 Buckingham Summer 4-H Programs

Join us this summer for day camps, overnight camps, and special one-day programs!

4-H summer programs provide all youth a place to discover, learn, and grow. We believe strongly in promoting the mission of Virginia 4-H, which encourages all young people to reach their full potential by working and learning in partnership with caring adults. Experienced leaders provide a well-supervised and supportive environment. We believe there is no better investment than your child attending camp! No matter which 4-H camp your child goes to, camp is a great place to meet new friends, to try something new, and to build cherished memories that last a lifetime! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call the Buckingham Extension Office at (434) 969-4261. See you this summer!

4-H programs are designed for youth ages 5-18. Ages are as of September 30th, 2014. Therefore, an 8 year old who turns nine on September 30th would count as a nine year old and be eligible for the Jr. Clover programs.

Financial aid is available for families in need. Contact us at (434) 969-4261 to find out more.
