Cooperative Extension: 4-H

Maine 4-H Days: Important Information and Rules

Maine 4-H Days Sign-in Requirements

Sign-in must be your first priority when arriving on the fairgrounds.  It is important for all attendees (including presenters and parents) to sign-in so that coordinators have an accurate account of who is on the fairgrounds at all times in case of an emergency.  Be sure to indicate on your form which days you plan to be at the event.  You will receive a bracelet upon sign-in, and are required to wear it throughout the weekend.  If you are seen on the fairgrounds without a Maine 4-H Days bracelet, you will be asked to report immediately to the office to sign-in.  This includes workshop participants – you will be asked to leave the workshop until sign-in is complete.

Important Information and Rules

  • Every child must have a chaperone, and chaperones must remain on the grounds at all times (sharing the responsibility is fine). Chaperones of Cloverbuds (ages 5-8) should plan to accompany them from one workshop to the next, and check in with each workshop instructor to see if it is appropriate to leave them with the instructor. Some Cloverbud workshops require adults to stay and assist their child(ren).
  • Please complete a separate registration for each person. Please register if you are a member, leader, parent, or sibling of a participant.  If you need paper copies of the registration packet and forms, please contact your local UMaine Cooperative Extension county office, or call the State 4-H Office at: 800.287.0274, or 207.581.3877.
  • The cost for Maine 4-H Days is $10.00 per person, with a maximum fee of $40.00. Checks or money orders can be made out to the University of Maine – be sure to put Maine 4-H Days in the memo line, or you can pay online.
  • Confirmations are not mailed out; if you are unsure whether your registration arrived, please call the Waldo County Cooperative Extension office at 207.342.5971.
  • Individuals with special needs accommodations should contact Alisha Targonski at least 14 days prior to the event. All requests for accommodation will be considered.
  • Curfew is at 10:00 pm; all attendees need to be quiet & settled in after that.
  • Please use the buddy system when walking around the fair grounds. This is not a closed venue; we are sharing the grounds with the other groups.
  • Dogs need to be on a leash at all times, and must have a current rabies certificate on the premises.
  • Shoes/Footwear must be work at all times when moving around the fairgrounds.
