Mini 4-H is a program designed to encourage positive development of children, Kindergarten through second grade (though not all counties are able to offer this to all grades). The goal of Mini 4-H is to help young children explore friendships outside the family; explore the way in which things work; practice both small and large muscle control; and think about the ways people work together on projects.
The 2017 Boone County 4-H Handbook is available here for all 4-H families.
Enjoy the fun, food, education, and festivities at the Boone County 4-H Fair July 22-28 with free admission and free parking. For more information and a fair schedule click here or call the Purdue Extension Office of Boone County at 765-482-0750.
The educational 4-H dairy program and related activities (such as workshops and tours) provide youth a fun and hands-on learning experience which develops both dairy subject skills (such as nutrition, housing, and health care) and life skills (such as responsibility, decision-making, nurturing, and communications) under the direction of caring adults.
