4-H Ontario Day Camp Grant

Deadline: April 15, 2019

As 4-H Ontario explores options to engage more non-traditional audiences, we are piloting a new program to engage youth on their days off school. 4-H Ontario wishes to introduce youth who are not currently involved in 4-H to learn what 4-H has to offer. This grant program was created to provide support to 4-H volunteers who wish to hold a day camp during out of school time (i.e. on a teacher’s professional development (PD) day, Christmas Break or March Break, etc.). Day camps are typically offered for youth ages 6 -12, which is why the Discovery Day provincial opportunities are offered for this age group.
