Summer Programming


  • Sustainable Agriculture Virtual Camp (Year-round)

    Alachua County youth are invited to participate in the Alachua County 4-H Virtual Sustainable Agriculture Camp year-round. Topics covered in the camp include chickens, gardening, livestock, food, and more. This camp will be a self-paced experience with all of the materials available on Google Classroom. The recommended pace is to view a topic per week and reach out to the corresponding Extension Agent as needed. Youth do not need to be enrolled in 4-H to participate.

    We are excited to now invite all 11-13 year old youth from across Florida to the University of Florida’s campus for a two night and full day leadership development experience. They will have the opportunity to connect with others from across the state of Florida and explore potential interests to ignite their spark in life. These interests will be explored through on and offsite engaging educational workshops that will connect them to career field experts unique to this experience.
