§18-11-11. Four-H camps.
The "4-H" camp institute and state exhibit of boys' and
girls' club work, heretofore established at Jackson's Mill, in
Lewis county, shall be continued for the purpose of teaching boys
and girls the "4-H" standards of living and to inspire them to
lift themselves toward these standards, and to discover and train
boys and girls for leadership and for the purpose of teaching
standards of excellence in agriculture and home economics. It
shall be the duty of the state commissioner of public
institutions to secure a site for the aforesaid camp institute
and state show, and to erect the necessary buildings, and provide
necessary and suitable equipment. It shall be the duty of the
state commissioner of public institutions, when such grounds and
buildings are provided and equipped, as above stated, to turn
them over to the college of agriculture of West Virginia
University to be operated by the extension division in carrying
out the purposes and intents herein set forth. When not in use
by the extension division, and under their regulations, this
equipment may be rented to other organizations for convention
use. Any money derived from such rent shall be turned over to
the state commissioner of public institutions. Any
appropriations hereafter made to carry out the provisions and
purposes of this section shall be expended through the state
commissioner of public institutions.
The regional "4-H" camp, heretofore established at
Pinecrest, in Raleigh county, shall also be continued for the
purpose of stimulating interest in, and teaching methods of attaining higher standards of living and better modes of life in
mining and other industrial communities, and be operated by the
extension division of the West Virginia University, as
hereinbefore provided in this section.
The county court of any county may appropriate money from
the county fund to erect a county building on such "4-H" camp
property at Jackson's Mill, and at Pinecrest, or either of them.
