April, Month of the Military Child provides an opportunity to recognize and honor our youngest heroes, military children.  These youth face many challenges that are unique to their situation such as having a parent deployed, frequent moves, new schools, and leaving friends.  Their ability to adapt to these challenges deserves our respect.  Virginia has more than 73,000 military-connected children.

For more than 80 years, Virginia 4-H camping  has been a proven and effective method of teaching life skills.  Each of the six 4-H Educational centers has achieved American Camp Association (ACA) accreditation.
