4-H Camps

4-H camp provides youth countless opportunities for learning more about themselves, their peers and the natural world around them. Our main focus during camp is to help youth develop independence, self-esteem, confidence, interpersonal skills and other life skills.

Overnight Summer Camp

COVID-19 Update

Preparations are underway for Chesterfield 4-H summer camp held at Jamestown. We are continually monitoring the situation and will follow guidance from local health departments and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The information is subject to change, depending on the most current guidance from state health and government officials.

Dates

Monday, June 27, 2022- Friday, July 1, 2022

Registration

To register or for more information regarding camps, please email Jennifer Coates.

Age Requirements

Campers

A camper is any youth that is 9-13 years old. To qualify, the youth must turn at least age 9 and may not be older than age 13 as of Sept. 30, 2022.

Counselors-in-Training

Counselor-in-Training (CIT) age is 13 (specifically, must turn 13 on or before Jan. 1, 2022) and only for youth interested in applying for future teen counselor positions. CIT’s receive leadership training while at 4-H camp. 

Please note:

  • Youth that turn 13 after Jan. 1, 2022, must attend camp as a camper as they do not meet the age requirement for CIT this year.
  • If interest in CIT registration, please make sure to use that specific registration link. 
  • Each youth may only sign up as a camper or CIT, not both. Registering a single individual for both cancels that youth’s registration altogether.

Teen Camp Counselors

Teen Camp Counselor age is 14-18 (specifically, age 14 on or before Jan. 1, 2022, and no older than age 18 prior to Sept. 30, 2022).

Please note: 

  • These positions are filled for 2022 and follow a competitive, selective process.
  • Teens interested in this opportunity for the future (2023 and on) should contact Bethany Eigel.
  • For the 2022 camp, if a teen turned age 14 on or before Jan. 1, 2022, they are not eligible for enrollment, neither as a camper or CIT. These teens must apply in advance for a teen camp counselor position. Applications are available each fall around the start of the school year.

Transportation

Transportation to and from camp is not provided. Parents must drop off and pick up their child from the Jamestown 4-H Center.
