The program was introduced by the West Virginia Division of Culture and History with support from the West Virginia Department of Education for the state’s Sesquicentennial in 2013. Now in its fourth year, we provide the camp participants with opportunities to learn more about the state with programs at the State Capitol, about Charleston with activities in the city and to get a taste of college life while they stay in University of Charleston dorms. There are no costs for the camp. The students stay in dorms and eat in the cafeteria at the University of Charleston. They ride buses to their activities at the State Capitol and downtown Charleston. And, they have 24-hour teacher chaperones during the camp. West Virginia Ambassador Camp is completely funded and operated through grants from the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts, West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission, Clay Center for the Performing Arts and Sciences and Charleston Convention and Visitors Bureau. The West Virginia Department of Education provides technical support. The camp is coordinated and run by the West Virginia Division of Culture and History. The camp is managed by the Commissioner for West Virginia Division of Culture and History, Randal Reid-Smith.
