HORSESHOE — Children from across West Virginia describe their time at Horseshoe as “loving the activities, cabin life is fun, the counselor are the best, we made new friends and the food is GREAT!”

Adventure and Governor’s Youth Opportunity Camps build teamwork, skills for success and promote healthy living. Horseshoe helps young people become all they can be.

AmeriCorps members serve as counselors and high school students throughout the state help as volunteers. “Every week brings a new set of impressionable minds that we can help mold into tomorrow’s leaders,” states one AmeriCorps member.

Camp Horseshoe, opened in 1940, is a program for all West Virginia. The camp is operated by the Ohio-West Virginia Youth Leadership Association.

Horseshoe serves statewide and beyond. For information call 304-478-2481, e-mail or check out our web page at
