4-H Trips and Activities


4-H Trips and Activities are a great way to incorporate lifelong memories into your summer! Below, you can find a one page sheet that outlines the opportunities available (along with their dates and deadlines). Contact Lesley at the Extension Office ( or 812-275-4623) anytime you want more information about a trip. Often there is 4-H Council financial support for these activities if you sign up early.

Round Up
Open to 4-H members in grades 7-9, this three day experience also takes place at Purdue University. Participants will stay on campus June 20-22 and participate in exciting, hands-on career exploration with college faculty and staff. You can see the flyer and more information below. We currently have 10 partial scholarships from the 4-H Council remaining, so contact Lesley to register today.
