Nevada 4-H offering late summer and fall activities

by Nevada State News
4-H youth have been encouraged to make videos or take photos at home to share with others, like this one from the “Dog Den” of 4-H in Pahrump, featuring Anoushka (left back), Alaina (right back) and Increase (front center).

RENO – Nevada’s 4-H Youth Development Program has kept kids active throughout the COVID-19 pandemic with engaging activities that will continue into the fall.

“People are accustomed to us kicking off various 4-H programs around the beginning of the traditional school year, and despite COVID-19, we are still getting a lot of inquiries about afterschool programs, as well as clubs and other 4-H activities,” explained Carrie Stark, Nevada 4-H program director with University of Nevada, Reno Extension. “Our staff and volunteers are working incredibly hard to constantly build and adapt programs to serve our youth, as COVID-related restrictions are a bouncing ball, changing regularly.”

Both statewide and local programs will be offered in person, virtually, or in a hybrid format, depending on local health restrictions. Some local 4-H programs will include after school STEM programs, along with meetings and other activities, and fall camps.

Planned activities include:

  • Thoughtful Thursdays (Every other Thursday)
  • 4-H True Leaders to Service Month (September)
  • Virtual Clover Challenge 4K Fundraiser for the State 4-H Camp (Sept. 13-26)
  • State 4-H Expo (September – October)
  • National 4-H Week (Oct. 4-10)
  • 4-H Discover Your Future-Career Awareness Webinar Series (Thursdays, Oct. 29 – Dec. 17)
