Friday is the last day to sign up for the Virtual Outdoor Explorer 4-H Club! You do not have to be a current 4-H member to join, so invite your friends!
This club meets every Wednesday in June-July from 11am-noon with various outdoor topics and will challenge your family to explore options more on your own. Go to u.osu.edu/outdoorexplorer for more information and to register.
Grade Day as of today is still in the works for 2020. We are waiting to find out more information from the state 4-H office about how they are going to handle 4-H project evaluation on the state level since there is no State Fair. With that being said, there are a lot of options for us this year including in person grading and/or virtual platforms etc.
We will send more information out to everyone as soon as we know. BUT, we wanted to encourage everyone to start working on your projects if you haven’t already. Now is a great time to work on them so you are prepared for whatever Grade Day looks like this year!
The communications contest that typically happens in June will now be virtual this year! More information will be coming out in the coming weeks so stay tuned on how you can be involved in the communications contest.
4-H Camp Whitewood needs our help!
We are so thankful for the support our community has shown so far and are still looking for support to help us meet our goal. Any contribution made helps support camp this summer.
This week we are asking for families to share their favorite camp song. We hope you will too! Be creative, post a video of you or your camper singing their favorite song. How many friends, campers or counselors can you get together virtually to share camp songs?
Share a song on Camp’s Facebook!
Our goal of $30,000 for this fundraiser and exactly 21 days left for the campaign. WE CAN DO IT! We can only reach this goal with the help of all of YOU. We recognize that $30,000 will surely not make up for our losses, but we need to do everything we can to make sure our camp is still here for 2021 and beyond.

Sometimes our irrational thoughts about awful outcomes or needs for perfection may keep us from trying new activities. As we can tell ourselves rational statements—of our possible failures as we get better at new activities—those might help free us up simply to do our best.
