Summer is a busy time for 4-H Ontario, with projects, programming and opportunities galore. This year's Youth Adventure Camp is quickly approaching so make sure to register soon. If you're looking for an exciting contest to get involved in, read on about the Seed Growing Contest for CAM 2014. We'd also like to take notice of some exceptional feedback from our Volunteer Symposium and a great honour given to one of our members, Paulette Macdonald. 

New 4-H Policy Manual


 4-H Ontario has recently reviewed their policies and forms, streamlining them for simpler viewing. The 4-H Ontario Policy Manual is a resource which includes all 4-H Ontario policies, procedures, forms and fact sheets. All 4-H Ontario stakeholders (volunteers, members, staff, parents, etc.) are to use this document as reference and for support. Staff members, Council and Foundation are responsible for reviewing the documents, and making any needed changes or additions.
