STANLEY, Nov. 1 — Every year, Page County 4-H recruits bright, mature, and dedicated teenagers to lead by example at Page-Frederick 4-H Camp. As a counselor, teens have a big job. Counselors work with a team of peers and adult volunteers to supervise children ages 9-13. Teen counselors help campers learn how to try new things, deal with homesickness, get along with others who are different from them and to take responsibility for themselves. Counselors help build a thriving camp community that allows everyone to have fun.

Being a Teen Counselor for 4-H Camp is a great way to develop leadership skills, learn more about your strengths, and make new friends. Because being a 4-H Camp Counselor is also a big responsibility, we ask you to complete plenty of training beforehand to prepare you to be a caregiver during camp. This training focuses on leadership, teamwork and safety. This is excellent preparation for future leadership roles. Teens must be 14 or older by Jan. 1, 2023 and able to commit to the entire week of camp. 4-H Camp will be held June 25-29 at the NOVA 4-H Center in Front Royal.

To obtain an application or for more information about 4-H camping in Page County, please contact the Page County Extension Office at (540) 778-5794 or email meg21@vt.edu. Applications are due Dec. 19, 2022. Applicants selected will be interviewed in early 2023 and additional training will be required prior to camp.

Virginia Cooperative Extension is a partnership of Virginia Tech, Virginia State University, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and local governments. Its programs and employment are open to all.
