Hands-on Enrichment Workshops and Animal Project Programs
8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (Schedule coming soon!)
PLEASE NOTE: Parents and Chaperones AND younger siblings are welcome to sign-up for workshops and animal project mentoring as well! You do not need to worry about the age requirements if you are an adult. This is a great way for you to learn some new activities to bring back to share with your 4-H youth, or to gain more skills in a specific project area.
Note that younger siblings & 4-H friends (under 5 years) may only register for Cloverbud workshops AND must be accompanied by an adult helper.
Please list your choices on your Registration Form (PDF). If there is space after all 4-H youth and other 5 to 18 year old youth guests sign up, we will sign up you and/or your under 5 year old, too!
NEW THIS YEAR!! “Anytime Science” and “Anytime Craft” Areas for all ages. In addition to four sessions of enrichment workshops on Saturday and the many animal project mentoring opportunities, we will also have areas where youth and adults can take in shorter activities instead of or between sessions. Want to paint a pet rock for your garden? Make a beaded necklace? Create a sharpie tie-dye t-shirt? Learn about robotics and other fun science experiments? No need to sign up to enjoy these opportunities – just visit the “Anytime Science” and “Anytime Craft” area and have a ball!
4-H Club & School Exhibits Judging and Awards (See Club and School Exhibits for Jamboree Information for details.)
Saturday Potluck Lunch! Hot dogs & Hamburgers will be provided. Please bring a casserole, salad, or dessert. If parents aren’t attending for the day, please be back by 4:30 p.m. to help pick up!
