1.1 Homeschool 4-H Day Camp – Front Royal – Register by October 9

Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center
600 4-H Center Drive
Front Royal, VA

Tuesday and Wednesday, October 15 and 16, 2013, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Thursday, October 17, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; detailed schedule is on website. Cost: $85/family of three (must include at least one adult); $12/each additional family member (ages five and up, please). Cost includes programming, T-shirt/person, and one meal/day. Register by the morning of October 9, 2013. NOTE: This camp is now filled but there is a form online for those wishing to be placed on a waiting list.

Three days of “Learning Outside” fits with America’s 4-H mission–to develop youth, and adults working with those youth, to realize their full potential, becoming effective, contributing citizens through their participation in research-based, informal, hands-on educational experiences. Their brand of experiential learning will have you spending time exploring environmental education and leadership in an outdoor adventure in nature’s classroom!

Look forward to mornings in a figurative “one-room schoolhouse” with activities for all ages and afternoons in groups by age level (over and under 10 years) doing more “in-depth” explorations.

See the website for more information and to register; direct any questions to Avery Born at or 540-635-7171. Register online. After you complete registration and payment, you will receive a welcome packet with all the information and details you’ll need.
