Activities


Throughout the year, the 4-H program offers activities and special events outside of the local club environment. Some occur annually, while others are one-time special opportunities.

Annual Activities

Annual 4-H Basketball Tournament: The 4-H Basketball Tournament is a daylong event held in March. 4-H clubs may register a team, or individual 4-H members may register and be assigned to a team. Every registered player plays on a team. There are age-specific teams, with an emphasis on sportsmanship and competition. Younger teams are coed. Teams practice together and play in the tournament together. There are five divisions based on grade. This event has been cancelled for the 2020 4-H year.

Summer Camp

4-H Summer Camp is an overnight camp that takes place each year in summer -- Camp for summer 2020 has been cancelled. Mark your calendars and save the date for 4-H Summer Camp June 13-17, 2021!

Youth ages 9-16 enjoy four days and three nights at camp. Their days are spent doing a variety of activities including swimming, boating, canoeing, archery, horseback riding, team building, and educational crafts. Each evening they enjoy campfires, songs, skits and special themed programs. 

4-H Summer Camp provides leadership training and opportunites for the older youth who, along with 4-H adult volunteers, plan and organize camp activities.
