Campers will get the opportunity to participate in online and offline skill sessions, including cooking, outdoors, crafts, and science. All activities and sessions are planned around our central theme. This year, we have chosen Jumanji – Escape from the Jungle! You sign up for camp, we take care of the rest of your summer fun! You will be diving into an action-packed week of fun, learning new skills, growing your confidence, and making lifelong friendships. You will be participating in conversations and challenges with your Small Group, and having a blast during the skill sessions! Whether it be making a garbage bag kite and sailing it to the sky or looking high and low to get the most items in the scavenger hunt, the only thing we can promise is fun! Camp also includes evening activities such as a talent show to showcase your unique skills or a campfire. The best part? You get to do it all over again the next day!

About Virtual Camp
Virtual 4-H Camp offers creative activities and programs to keep you engaged and active during the week!
The day consists of two skill sessions (duration: one hour), one in the morning and one in the afternoon. These activity periods are filled with activities hand-picked to be a hit. You will be instructed via a pre-recorded video so you can re-watch it as many times as you need. Staff will also be available during this time to answer any questions you may have. Once you have completed your amazing project, time to test it out! This camp is all about learning how to have fun outside of a traditional camp setting while we are all a little trapped in the online world. In addition to your customized activity schedule, you will have the opportunity to participate in Small Group discussions, large group activities, and connect with old and new friends!
