INSTITUTE, W.Va. – West Virginia State University (WVSU) Extension Service is hosting a free 4-H Creative and Performing Arts day camp for youth ages 9 to 16 June 27-29 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the East End Family Resource Center in Charleston.

Participants can choose among a variety of tracks relating to photography, videography, music production and culinary arts, receiving hands-on instruction led by local industry experts.
