In 1957, Virgil C. Tate donated  57 acres to the county commission to establish a new 4-H Camp for Kanawha County.  

Camp Virgil Tate now includes over 400 beautiful acres just 30 minutes from Downtown Charleston, West Virginia. 

Available for outside group rental, Camp Tate is open year-round for meetings, retreats, and camps for all ages!  The camp features four cottages, a motel-style lodge, and dining hall with several meeting rooms.  Four barns and two show rings are available for horse camps and equestrian events.
