Chesapeake's 4-H Programs
|Phone: 757-382-6348||Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
|Address: 310 Shea Drive, Chesapeake, VA 23322|
The 4-H program provide practical experiences in trustworthiness, respect, responsibility, fairness, caring and citizenship. The 4-H year runs from October 1st to September 30th and provides opportunities for families to experience fun together. Families are able to encourage youth while they learn from both their successes and their failures.
4-H members are also active in helping the local Chesapeake community; they have collected pet food and toys for Chesapeake Animal Control, food items for the Southeast Food Bank, hats and gloves for the Chesapeake Office of Youth Services and donated items for care packets which were sent to the "We Care Marines" organization.
Some of the interesting opportunities include:
- Club Activities
There are several 4-H clubs and projects in Chesapeake. Youth can participate in the Horse and Pony Club, Hippology Team, Livestock Club or even the Ham Project. Please review the 4-H information page for clubs that may interest you and to download an application.
- Overnight Summer Camp Program
Each year attendance at our camp exceeds over 200 area youth for a most unique overnight, week long experience. This overnight camping experience is available for youth aged 9 years - 18 years of age. During that week everyone will have the opportunity to experience a camp fire, participate in a carnival and field
olympics. Additionally, instructional classes can include topics such as Fun with Foods, Performing Arts, Leathercraft, Canoeing, Animal Scienceand Archery. The camp brochure/registration form will be available for mailing by the end of February.
