Peninsula Explorers 4-H Club

A Blue Hill Heritage Trust 4-H Club for Youth on the Blue Hill Peninsula

Girl Hiking with 4-H and BHHT logosHancock County 4-H and Blue Hill Heritage Trust invite youth grades 3-8 to participate in the Peninsula Explorers Club! The focus of the club is to provide area youth with fun, educational and safe experiences in a variety of outdoor activities. Club themes may include: Winter Sports, Ice Fishing, Archery, Art, Tracking, Astronomy, Boating, Hiking, Wilderness Survival, Overnight Camping, and anything else we can think of outdoors!

NATIVE BEES will be the theme of our next session. We will meet four times over the spring, covering learning all about Maine’s Native Bees, and what we can do to help this important species!

We will learn about native bees, their threats, their jobs, build and install bee houses, and much more. Participants will even be invited to take a bee house home with them if they wish!

COVID-19 precautions will be in effect for this club. We will meet in most weather conditions (as long as it’s safe), and if the weather is deemed unfit, we will reschedule. Club participants should be prepared to attend all sessions in full to get the complete experience, and dress appropriately for hot or wet weather conditions, sticking with the old adage: “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing”.

This club is FREE and open to any kids living in the seven towns of the Blue Hill Peninsula. (Children under the age of 8 may attend with a grownup). Space is limited to 15 kids & first come/first serve.
