CAMP HORSESHOE — West Virginia’s future, her children, discovered new opportunities, built skills, experienced responsibility, made new friends, had fun, learned and grew at the Governor’s Youth Opportunity and Adventure Camps.

Four camp sessions, each six days, keep the 7-12 year old boys and girls busy and active in purposeful activities from sunrise to bedtime. Home cooked meals served family style were a highlight of every day Other favorite activities were the creek walk, swimming and sports. More than 20 different activities were offered including dance/drama, music, reading and writing along with archery, crafts, bracelets, and hiking.

VISTA volunteers serve as counselors, and all are impacted by the children they meet. Campers come away from summer with new games to play and new skills to take into their lives back home today and in their adult lives.
