As the state moves to Phase III of the COVID re-opening plan, Virginia Cooperative Extension and 4-H are resuming some in-person programming and services will continue to provide contactless and distance-based methods, such as using drop boxes for samples and pickup, phones, and virtual delivery of educational programming.
This website will provide current information on local office hours, programming, and more. We look forward continuing to serve our community.
All Virginia 4-H summer camps canceled due to COVID-19
To protect the health and well-being of 4-H campers and the general public, in-person Virginia 4-H summer camps, both residential and day, are canceled this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Anyone that has made a deposit or payment will receive a full refund. Campers and their families will be notified as we finalize the process.
The decision was made in alignment with Virginia Tech’s announcement that all summer classes must be conducted online instead of in person to help flatten the curve.
