Event Details

 

4-H Junior Camp is a residential, week-long summer camp program available to James City County residents ages 9-13. (Please see below for age guidelines.) Camp is held every year at the Jamestown 4-H Educational Center in Williamsburg, VA.

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 (archery, kayaking, sailing, robotics, vidoegraphy, marine science, challenge course, woodworking, arts and crafts, and much more!), 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.

Please note that the James City County Extension Office is in charge of planning for and processing registration for our week of 4-H Junior camp. Jamestown 4-H Center is just the facility we use during the week for camp programming. Registration and/or questions regarding James City County's 4-H Junior camp should be directed to the James City County Extension office at 757-564-2170, not the Jamestown 4-H Center. 

Cost and Payment

The cost to attend camp is $285.00 per camper. A $50.00 deposit per camper is due at the time of registration. However, we cannot accept online payment for camp fees. Thus, once you register you will need to mail a $50.00 deposit per camper (or the whole camp fee of $285.00 if you choose) to our office at: VCE-JCC, Attention: Camp Registration, PO Box 69, Toano, VA 23168. You can also bring the deposit into our office at: 3127 Forge Road, Toano, VA 23168. We can accept cash or checks made out to "VCE: JCC". Please put your camper's name in the memo line of all checks or attach a note with your camper's name to any cash payments. Deposits must be received within 2 weeks of your registration date or your spot in camp will be given to someone on the waitlist. There will be a $50.00 fee for all returned checks. The remaining camp balance will be due in May 26th, 2017.   

Financial Assistance:

Financial Assistance in the amount of a 75%, 50%, or 25% discount on camp fees is available to youth with financial need. Guidelines for financial assistance eligibility are based on the USDA’s eligibility guidelines for free and reduced school lunches. Financial assistance applications are available on our website at http://www.offices.ext.vt.edu/james-city/programs/4h/Clubs/summer-camp/index.html. You should submit your application with your $50.00 deposit (everyone is required to pay at least the $50.00 deposit). You will be notified of any financial assistance you will receive after your application has been processed.

Cancellation and Refund Policy:

Cancellations made prior to May 26th, 2017 will result in a refund of payments made minus a processing fee of 5% of the $50.00 deposit ($2.50). Cancellations made after May 26th, 2017 will result in a refund minus the $50.00 deposit and a 5% processing fee ($64.25).
