Learn To Do By Doing
If you are a student and looking for a club activity. Come join us! We work with age groups from 9 years old (as of Jan-1-13) to 21 years old. You can take the opportunity to learn leadership, banking, communication skills, starting and finishing a market animal; such as a pig or steer; learning more about horsemanship, or even learning how to shoot and maintain a gun; just to name a few.
The opportunities through 4-H are endless.
There is a winter camp near Cypress Hills where you learn leadership and how to ski or improve those skills.
You can meet new 4-H members from all over Alberta, Canada, United States and go on 4-H exchange trips all over the world, if you choose.
In the summer there are camps going on every week with qualified leaders at a beautiful site in Battle Lake, AB, our 4-H headquarters, just west of Wetaskiwan; with a lake to canoe and swim in; you learn archery, there is a baseball and soccer field also a basketball court, hikes and lots of games and fun activities; it appears that this place has an opportunity for everyone. You can even sleep in a tee-pee.
The scholarships for 4-H members are numerous.
4-H looks good to an employer on any resume.
