What qualities are sought when hiring 4-H camp staff?
Paid and volunteer 4-H camp staff are expected to be a positive influence on youth at all times. Because the Virginia 4-H has adopted the CHARACTER COUNTS! program, most paid and volunteer 4-H camp staff are trained in the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. These are the character traits that paid and volunteer 4-H camp staff members are expected to demonstrate and to foster in the 4-H camp environment.
