4-H Fun Tent for Youth (morning or all day session)

The Cooperative Extension Program will be hosting an "Fun Tent" filled with activities to keep your youth (ages 5-12) engaged while you enjoy your workshops and seminars. Highlights of the day will include: Goat Education (petting area, puppets, etc.), face painting, horse back and pony rides, PYOP (pot your own plant), and many other activities. The Fun Tent can be combined with the Fitting and Showing workshop. That is, the Fun Tent can either be all-day or just the morning so that youth may attend the Fitting and Showing Clinic in the afternoon (below). If the Fitting and Showing Clinic box is not clicked, then it assumed that the Fun Tent will be the all-day session.
