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.
