4-H Summer Learning Series

4-H Summer Learning Series: virtual experiential learning for youth ages 5-18

The 4-H Summer Learning Series is a hands-on, virtual learning series for youth ages 5-18. Throughout the summers of 2020 and 2021, the program was successful in connecting kids around the state, who had the option to join over 50 experiential learning workshops from home each summer. Watch the celebration video below to peek into our exciting world of virtual learning with 4-H!

The 4-H Summer Learning Series workshops are organized into a variety of topics, or “learning tracks”, such as engineering, art, science, animals & agriculture, food & nutrition, teen leadership, and more – there is truly something for everyone! 

Thank you to all who contribute to the 4-H Summer Learning Series, including 4-H Volunteers, Staff, Youth, Families – and especially the Maine 4-H Foundation. Check back for program updates in 2022.
