West Virginia Ambassadors Camp was conducted at the University of Charleston June 16 through June 19. Campers stayed on the UC campus during the week while they continued to learn about our state’s history and participate in classes taught by West Virginia artisans.
The ambassador program is sponsored by the West Virginia Department of Education, the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, the West Virginia Department of Education and the Arts, , the City of Charleston, Higher Education Policy Commission, the Clay Center for the Arts and Sciences, the University of Charleston, and various other state agencies and nonprofit organizations.
During the event, students spent a day at West Virginia Capitol Complex, where they met the WV Constitutional Officers, toured the state museum, capitol, state archives and state library. In addition, the arts experience includeed hands-on-art workshops as well as a music workshop and an evening performance.
Students are expected to return to their home counties and serve as ambassadors for our great state. Activities throughout the year following the camp should include but are not limited to presentation at school-wide assemblies, scheduled classroom events at local elementary schools and the creation of an exhibit at the county commission building.
