4-H Update

Due to ongoing health concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Ohio State University Extension in-person programming has been canceled through July 6. This includes all 4-H programs, activities and events.

Additionally, Ohio 4-H has made the very difficult decision to cancel all 4-H camps through August 31. Although in-person programming is canceled, Ohio 4-H will continue to offer virtual 4-H experiences.

This is an incredible disappointment to us all and we recognize how much everyone looks forward to our cherished 4-H summer events. As 4-H professionals committed to providing positive youth development programming, we share your sense of loss.

Kids need us now more than ever — for educational resources, as caring adult mentors and perhaps most of all, a sense of community. Ohio 4-H joins other 4-H professionals across the country providing positive youth development to families through virtual experiences. Find more information at https://4-h.org/about/4-h-at-home/.
