Our trips and events

4-H encompasses more than just the 4-H Fair. The 4-H program offers several opportunities for youth of all ages to participate in various trips and events. We courage youth to participate in as much as they want. Some trips like 4-H Round-Up are located at Purdue University's main campus, where participating youth experience dorm life, tour the campus, and attend career events held by Purdue's facially and staff. Other trips such as 4-H Camp allow youth to experience camp with fellow 4-H members from across the state. Youth can be campers and counselors and lead fun actives throughout camp!
