ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) – With many activities for children postponed or canceled this summer, Virginia 4-H is stepping up and offering a variety of programs to children online.
This week, Virginia 4-H launched their Camping Across the Commonwealth virtual summer camp.
For 100 years, Virginia 4-H has emphasized the holistic approach of child development: head, heart, hands, and health.
With the online platform, the youth development education program is now creating new spaces for children and teens to learn life skills; develop a sense of community and connection; and enjoy activities such as cooking, engineering, and animal science..While the virtual camps do require internet connection, 4-H leaders say they have plans in place for children and teens who may not have that necessity.
With the loss of in-person camps this summer, Virginia 4-H created a relief fund that you can donate to. Click here to donate.
