Please contact the office if you have any questions, or if you did not receive ID information by email.
  • Project Workshop & Cloverbud Day
    Calling all Cloverbuds!  You’re invited to an afternoon of safari themed fun with the Wright County 4-H Ambassadors! Get ready for games, snacks, songs, crafts, and more! All Cloverbuds (and non 4-H friends grades K-3) are welcome. Project Workshop Day is an opportunity for youth in grades 3+ to participate in hands-on workshop related to 4-H project areas.  This year there are over 15 workshops to choose from!  Choices include: Bread Baking, Electricity, Succulents, Jewelry Making, Slime, Geology, Quilling and much more!  Join us for fun afternoon for 4-H project learning.
  • Shooting Sports Leader Training—Save the Date
    We could use some more help with this year’s shooting sports practices in all disciplines.    All that is required to volunteer with this program is to attend a SS&W Leader Training (they’ll teach you everything you need to know) and complete the volunteer screening.   Wright County 4-H pays the registration fee, and will reimburse volunteers for mileage and lodging to attend (we do ask if 4-H covers the cost that you commit to the program for at least 3 years).
