Ages are determined by child's age as of September 30, 2021. For example, if a child is 4 at the time of the event, but turning 5 in August, then that child is considered to be 5 in "4-H years" and can attend the program.

What are age groups for sleeping and activities?

9-13 for campers, and 14-19 for counselors. Each room is grouped by age but we do allow room requests for first timers. Some activities like shotgun require campers to be 12, but most everything is open to all ages

Are phones allowed?

No phones or electronics are allowed of any kind.

Any way to determine what activities the week will present or does campers get to choose?

Campers pick 3 classes to take throughout the week. There is also free time to do different recreational activities. Classes are picked on the first day at camp and include things like archery, robotics, swimming, canoeing, leathercraft, performing arts, outdoor living skills, challenge course, and more.

Is there a pool or swimming areas available?

Yes, there is a pool with a shallow and deep end and a climbing wall. We do a swim test on the first day for campers interested in swimming in the deep end and/or taking canoeing.

Is the camp facility secure?

Yes! The camp facility has security cameras located in various areas that are always being monitored. No one can enter the facility without checking in at the main building first. During the Dinwiddie 4-H Junior Camp week, we are privileged to also have a few members of the Dinwiddie County Sheriff’s department attend camp as volunteers. These members have experience working with youth as they are generally Student Resource Officers, but they have also been attending camp for many years. We are very lucky to have them!
