THE BASICS

ABOUT CAMP

The Wyomoco Resident Camp Program addresses the developmental needs and interests of campers within the goals and objectives of 4-H Youth Development and Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County. The program intends to help campers’ ages 8 through 16 grow and learn in a healthy, positive environment; give them a wonderful, fun-filled week at camp, and provide a safe place for both these things to happen. 4-H Camp Wyomoco is fully owned and operated by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County.

4-H Camp Wyomoco is coeducational and open to any boy or girl who has reached their eighth birthday, but have not reached their 17th birthday by the start of their week at camp. It is not necessary to be a 4-H member. 4-H Camp Wyomoco provides equal program and employment opportunities. Each day at 4-H Camp Wyomoco is filled with a variety of programs and activities. These include camper, recreational, and cabin activities, and all camp events. Special events are 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.

LOCATION

4-H Camp Wyomoco is located at 2780 Buffalo Road, Varysburg, NY 14167 (20 miles south of Batavia) and features 280 beautiful acres of woods, meadows, and a three-acre pond.

LIVING AREAS AND MEALS

Rustic but comfortable. All campers live in cabins with staff supervision. Flush toilets and showers are located in both the girl’s village and boy’s village for convenience. Our professional kitchen staff takes pride in preparing food that is both nutritious and appealing to children. There is plenty of wholesome food and all the milk you can drink! The first meal is Sunday supper and the last is Friday lunch.

STAFFING

The staff members that are selected to work at 4-H Camp Wyomoco are hired based on their experience and qualifications in working with children. They are dedicated and conscientious. All staff undergo a comprehensive reference and background check. Counselors live in cabins with campers and teach camp classes and activities.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

A Camp Nurse is on staff at camp. Further medical care would be provided at Wyoming County Community Hospital in Warsaw. The camp is inspected at least three times a year and licensed by the N.Y.S. Department of Health as required by law. Reports concerning the camp are on file at the Wyoming County Health Department, 5362 Mungers Mill Road, Silver Springs, NY 14550. New York State Health Code requires that a completed and up-to-date CAMPER INFORMATION PACKET be submitted by at least three (3) weeks prior to attending camp. A doctor’s signature is required for a camper to take any supplements, over the counter or prescription medications. These medications will be administered by the camp nurse. Campers who are sick will not be admitted to camp.

CAMP CONDUCT

Campers are expected to comply with camp rules and regulations and conform to the daily routines of camp. Failure to do so may result in dismissal from camp without a refund for the remainder of that session. Campers and their parents should refer to the CAMPER CODE OF CONDUCT, located on page two of the Camper Information Packet, which describes in detail the guidelines for camper behavior.
