National 4-H Week October 1-7

Each day of National 4-H Week will have a themed activity that Madison youth will be able to complete on their own or in small groups. These activities will allow the exploration of the Essential Elements of 4-H: Belonging, Independence, Mastery, and Generosity. Activities will culminate with our Northeast District 4-H Kick-Off to be held at 4-H Camp Cherry Lake on October 14th.
