NC 4-H Virtual Summer Programs

Your child can experience these at their own pace throughout the summer. Deadline to register is August 15.

Back to the Basics – This virtual learning series will bring back some of the family and consumer sciences skills that many youth have lost touch with from sewing, cooking, table etiquette, baking, and financial management.

Coffee & Culture – Virtual Zoom sessions for teens 13-18. Teens will form a deeper understanding of themselves and others as they explore their own backgrounds, cultural knowledge, beliefs, and attitudes.

Down on the Farm – A fun learning experience to allow youth to learn about animals even if you aren’t raised on a farm. Youth will learn about where their food and byproducts come from. Youth will learn also about the companion animals that you can find in houses that aren’t on the farm.

Explore Outdoors – Explore Outdoors is a fun way to learn about the environment right in your own nature patch – farm, suburbs, or city – it all counts! You can meet scientists and add your discoveries to a real environmental science database!

4-H Healthy Habits Family – This program encourages families to get involved in learning together! 4-H Healthy Habits Family is designed to guide a caregiver and their elementary-aged youth through fun and engaging garden-based activities.

Plant Geeks Unite – Join us for a virtual, summer, North Carolina 4-H Plant Science Adventure! In this self-guided exploration for 8-12 year-olds, we will dig into soils, marvel and grow plants with wild abandon and say hello to creeping, crawling, diving, and flying friends and so much more.

Log on to Leadership – Leadership requires a set of skills that allow a person to influence others in a positive way to achieve great things. 4-H members will have the opportunity to develop their time management, goal setting, conflict management, and public speaking skills so they can be better for their clubs, communities, country, and world!

STEM  –  Various topic for different age groups, focusing on kitchen science, bugs, technology, etc.
