2013 Appomattox/Lynchburg Summer Camp
We are now accepting registrations for the 2013 Lynchburg Summer 4-H Camp to be held August 5 - August 9 at Holiday Lake 4-H Center. 4-H Camp is a fun and exciting way for youth ages 9 to 13 to spend a week away from home. Campers from Appomattox County and the City of Lynchburg spend a great week at Holiday Lake 4-H Educational Center, learning new skills, making new friends, and catching up with old buddies. 4-H Camp also fosters a sense of independence and promotes important life skills. The program staff at the 4-H Center teach a core group of classes. Trained adult leaders, teen leaders (ages 14 –19), and Extension staff teach various other classes and supervise the campers during the week. The cost is $190.00 for the week and it is for youth that are 9 - 13 years old.
