4-H Ontario Discovery Days Return This Summer

(Posted May 1, 2017)

ROCKWOOD, ON (May 1, 2017) – 4-H Ontario is excited to offer another year of Discovery Days for youth ages 6-12 across Ontario.

These one-day camps offer youth the chance to explore opportunities available in 4-H Ontario through participation in a variety of stations. Participants are able to try out different activities and meet new friends. They’ll be making crafts, their own grasshead, exploring why pH is important to ruminants like cows, using teamwork to play a version of 4-H field hockey, showcasing their trivia smarts in our famous Go For The Gold game and making a delicious snack to enjoy–all in one day!

For just $19, Discovery Days provide a full day of fun from 9:30am to 3:30pm, including lunch, all activities and a Discovery Days t-shirt for each participant. These camps are open to both 4-H members and non-members alike, with a maximum registration of 60 participants. Register early!
