WVSU Extension Service 4-H Program Offers Variety of Summer Youth Camps
INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Service’s 4-H Program will host a variety of free summer camps for youths ranging from ages 4-18 on topics such as gardening, life skills and learning the Spanish language.

“All of our WVSU 4-H Summer Programs engage students across the board, whether it's learning Spanish, building their own container garden or learning how to mend clothes,” said WVSU 4-H Assistant Program Director Hannah Payne. “There really is something for everyone.” 

The schedule of WVSU 4-H Program summer camps is as follows:
  • Grub Club-- 3rd-5th Graders -- June 6-10: Kids will get grubby and grow vegetation in this free, hands-on summer camp. Participants will meet with youth gardeners around the state via Zoom, and will be supplied with their own container gardening kit and materials for plant science experiments by mail. All activities and meetings will be led by 4-H staff.
  • Life Skills -- 9th-12th Graders -- June 20-24: Adulting 101: This free, self-paced camp teaches high schoolers about various topics such as navigating college applications, how to change a tire and obtaining your first apartment. Delivered via a mix of in-person and virtual programming, participants can choose which modules are most relevant to their interests.
