Adventures at 4-H

Ages 8-12. Fire up the tea pot and get ready to bring home tales of outdoor adventure! Transportation is available.

We'll find our home in the forest, looking for stories in the tracks and playing games among the trees.

Come on out and learn how to thrive in the winter wonderland! We’ll practice building fires when they say it can’t be done. And when the sun is shining, we’ll be out there having fun. Following trails, sipping hot drinks and having wild adventures. Winter is a perfect time to meet friends and learn about the natural world. Jump in the van!

Transportation to 4-H Acres: Van pick up is available from Belle Sherman, Beverly J. Martin, Cayuga Heights, Northeast, and Fall Creek Elementary Schools.
Pick Up: Participants will be driven downtown to Cornell Cooperative Extension at 615 Willow Ave Ithaca. Families may pick up there or directly from 4-H Acres at 4:45.
