Discovery Days

For youth ages 6–12

Discovery Days

The health and safety of our youth, volunteers and stakeholders is priority. Due to further reductions in the number of individuals allowed at a gathering and the increased number of COVID-19 cases in Ontario, the following Discovery Day events are temporarily suspended: Region 5 (Walkerton Fairgrounds – May 9), Region 1 (Emo Fairgrounds – May 23), Region 6 (Dorchester Fairgrounds – May 30) and Region 3 (Orono Fairground – June 6). 4-H Ontario will make regular assessments and updates on the status of these events and will reschedule dates as social-distancing protocols are lifted. More information on the status of the Discovery Days in Region 4 (Ancaster Fairgrounds – June 13) and Region 2 (North Grenville Municipal Centre – June 20) will be available soon. If you have any questions, please contact Danielle Farquharson, Coordinator, Programming by email at opportunities@4-hontario.ca

Discovery Days are a fantastic one-day 4-H experience for 4-H members, and for youth curious about joining.

At Discovery Days, youth aged 6 through 12 years old (as of December 31, 2019) explore the wide array of fun and interaction available in 4-H Ontario, through different activities and games.

Try your hand at making your own plant container, explore what happens when you combine soap and food colouring with milk, use teamwork to herd escaped animals, 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 the Discovery Days Olympics! All of this in just one day!

"Discovery Day was a perfect introduction to 4-H for the 6 year olds as it truly captured the essence of the program. From making crafts, decorating their own shirt, participating in Go For The Gold, and dodging a marshmallow gun all day, they had tons of fun." 

Looking to get your friends involved in 4-H? Bring a friend to Discovery Days and be entered to win a great 4-H prize pack! 

Each year is a new experience!  

Participants arrive for 9:30am registration and head home at 3:30pm. Lunch is provided.

$28 per attendee

Discovery Days are for everyone! All youth ages 6-12 are invited to attend.
