ABOUT CAMP WYOMOCO

4-H Camp Wyomoco is fully owned and operated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County. Our Camp is coeducational and open to any boy or girl who has reached their 8th birthday, but not reached their 17th birthday by the start of their week at camp. It is not necessary to be a 4-H member to attend camp. Each day at 4-H Camp Wyomoco is filled with a variety of programs and activities including camper classes, recreational activities, cabin activities, and all camp events. Special events are also planned on a weekly basis to fit the theme of the week. These events provide your child with opportunities to make new friends and develop lasting camp memories. Campers sleep in comfortable, rustic cabins. Bathrooms are located within walking distance of each cabin and include toilets, sinks and private showers. There are separate villages for the boys and girls as well as our Counselors-in-Training. Campers must provide their own linens and toiletries. Please refer to the Camp Handbook for the complete list of items needed. Camp Wyomoco is located at 2780 Buffalo Road, Varysburg, NY. The camp includes over 285 acres of fields, meadows, streams, and woodlands.
