WVU Jackson’s Mill Winter Lights Celebration is just around the corner, on Friday, December 6, 2019. We are still looking for groups and/or organizations to “Adopt a Dorm” to help deck the halls.
Each year thousands of West Virginia youths and other visitors travel to West Virginia University Jackson’s Mill to participate in 4-H camps where they learn valuable leadership and mentoring skills, while forging lifelong friendships. Part of that journey includes participation in the West Virginia State 4-H Camp Council Circle, a symbolic center of spirit for campers.
For the past century, getting to the Circle has meant traversing along a wooded trail, with no direct access to the area. Through a generous donation of $100,000 from long-time 4-H and Jackson’s Mill supporter, Jack M. Tyree, campers will now travel to the Circle via the Jack M. and Helen S. Tyree Bridge.
“A bridge is a symbol of connections and progress in our lives. At Jackson’s Mill, our young people will build attitude, knowledge, and skill – important bridges with their friends, their community and their future,” Tyree said.
In preparation for impending upgrades to the WVU Jackson's Mill reservation system, please note that a credit card is now required for all individual room reservations made at Jackson’s Mill, if the room is not being paid for as part of an overall group bill.
Regrettably, WVU Jackson's Mill is no longer able to accept reservations and then bill counties or other programs for later payments.
If a group, program unit, etc., is paying for the cost of any individual rooms these will be included as part of a master bill in the same procedure as has been used in the past.
