2016 Kids’ College

A day of hands-on fun and learning, Kids’ College is designed to get youth thinking, doing, and creating. Classes are open to all 4-Hers and their friends grades 3 and up, regardless of their enrolled projects. Youth do not have to be enrolled in 4-H for this event. Strengthen your skills in an area you’ve signed up for, or try out a brand new one. It’s up to you! There is also a special track just for Cloverbuds (or youth grades K-2)!
