Discovery Days run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

At Discovery Days, youth aged 6-12 years old explore the wide array of fun and interaction available in 4-H Ontario, through different activities and games.

This years theme is “Mighty 4-H, use your creative side to create a fun craft, explore how to work as a team, showcase your trivia smarts in our famous Go For The Gold game, make a delicious snack that you can then enjoy, and test your skills at Discovery Days Olympics! All of this in just one day!  

Along with all of this, you’ll get a pizza lunch, a T-shirt you can decorate and take home with you and you will meet new friends. Each year is a new experience! Try them all!

“Discovery Days was a perfect introduction to 4-H as it truly captured the essence of the program. From making crafts, to decorating their own shirt, participating in Go for The Gold, and dodging a marshmallow gun all day, they had tons of fun.”

– Participant’s Parent
