4-H summer camp canceled due to COVID-19.

 All Virginia 4-H summer camps, both day and residential, have been canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic — including the Chesterfield 4-H junior camp at the Jamestown 4-H Center. The decision was made to help reduce the rate of infection in the state and flatten the curve.

Though we are not able to hold camp this year, we remain committed to growing future leaders and educating youth in Chesterfield County.

Thank you for your understanding as we go through these unprecedented and challenging times together.

For any questions or concerns please contact  Bethany Eigel or Jennifer Coates.

Transportation

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

Camp Store/Care Packages

Camp store and care packages will be offered at the same time as registration. We will offer a great selection of items at the same time you register your child to hopefully make this a less stressful process! New items are being offered (hoodies, water bottles, plush animals, and more)!

Age Requirements

Camper must turn age 9 between Oct. 1, 2019 and Sept. 30, 2020. Counselors in Training (CIT) must turn 13 as of Jan. 1, 2020.  Please sign up for CIT if your camper is interested in being a counselor in future. There will be a separate registration link for CIT’s to use.

Roommate Requests

We are no longer taking roommate requests. This is being done for a number of reasons. Inevitable, each year we are unable to accommodate everyone’s request which leads to disparity and disappointment. Often requests come in that are conflicting and make for awkward situations. When requests can be accommodated it sometimes creates situations where all but 1 or 2 of the campers knows each other well and those 1 or 2 campers end up feeling left out and alienated despite staff’s best efforts to integrate the room. Summer camp is a place for kids to get out of their comfort zone and interact with new people in a fun low pressure environment. Summer camp is a place for new experiences. Campers may miss out on meeting a new lifelong friend that they would not otherwise have made had it not been for them meeting them for the first time at camp in their cabin. Please allow your campers to get the full experience of camp and all the glorious benefits that come with it that will follow them for a lifetime.
