The Northern Virginia 4-H Educational Center is excited to announce the launch of our new, first-annual Family Camp event this year! Perfect for nuclear and extended families, neighborhood groups, alumni groups, etc., this event will run over the long Labor Day Weekend, August 30-September 2, and is all about relaxing, renewing family ties, and meeting new friends.

The schedule is designed to offer ample time for your family to enjoy any number of the self-led activities on site, but also to use the incredible beauty of the Center to create an atmosphere for the simple yet powerful practice of rest and renewal.

Family Camp includes three-nights’ lodging in private rooms in one of three lodging options, seven delicious meals prepared by our own chef staff, unlimited access to the recreation activity options at the 4-H Center, and fun evening program options led by Center staff.

To make each Family Camp unique, we are also inviting YOU, our family campers, to consider leading a group activity or workshop! If you have an interest, hobby, or area of passion that you would like to share with others, just let us know so we can add it to the master activity schedule! Maybe it’s a yoga workshop, or a model-rocket launch, or a guided nature hike, or cast-iron cooking? It’s up to you!

Certain activities facilitated by Center-staff may also be available on a fee basis (canoeing, climbing wall, swimming pool, etc.). You’ll receive a full activity and program schedule upon arrival.

We hope you’ll consider bringing your family and friends to close out the summer together at this special event!   If you have questions, please contact me at Or, if you’re ready to reserve your spot NOW, registration is LIVE: Family Camp Registration Form


Hope to see you here!
