The workshops will offer hands-on experiences for senior experienced 4-Hers all the way down to first-timers. Cloverbuds are welcome but must have an adult present during the entire time. Participants are welcome to come for one day of the clinic or the whole weekend. Youth are invited to bring their own animals to practice with, but additional animals will be available on site for useOvernight family camping available.

Registration fee is $65.00 per youth participant. This fee includes Saturday lunch and dinner, Sunday breakfast, snacks and a t-shirt. This fee also covers meals for one adult per family accompanying a participant. Cloverbuds are welcome but must have an adult present during the entire time.

Additional family members are welcome to spend the day(s) at the clinic. They can choose to eat with the participants for $15.00 per additional family member (this covers Saturday lunch & dinner and Sunday breakfast). 

Please print and bring this payment form and check made out to "UNH Cooperative Extension" to the event. We will collect payment upon arrival for registration fees, camping fees, additional family members and extra t-shirts. 


Camping spaces are offered for Friday and Saturday night for $15 per night. If camping Friday night arrival on the grounds is between 6:00pm-9:00pm. If camping on Saturday you must arrive no later than 7:45am.

You can designate on the 4HOnline registration that you plan to camp. Please use the camping form to finalize your camping reservation. You do not need to submit your camping form ahead of time. Bring the camping form to the event with payment form and check. 


If you are bringing an animal you are responsible for the care, feeding and bedding for them while you participate in the clinic workshops. Please bring a health certificate with proof of rabies within 30 days of the clinic and scrapie’s tag for sheep. Animals will be checked by clinic staff upon arrival.

Youth who do not plan to bring an animal will be able to borrow one at the event to use during workshops. Cloverbuds do not need to bring an animal. Their workshops will be hands-on and developmentally appropriate.


This year the clinic will host an Art Show and Poster Contest.  The purpose is to educate the public about safety around sheep and goats and general animal/farm knowledge. 4-Hers create an Animal Safety/General Knowledge Poster to illustrate any aspect of sheep and goat education or general farm knowledge/ safety. The poster must be a minimum of 11" x 14" in size, or a maximum of 22" x 28" and should be readable at 30'. THIS POSTER SHOULD BE YOUR OWN WORK (do not use trademarked or copyrighted designs other than the 4-H Clover). Members are discouraged from using glue sticks – items glued this way tend to fall off posters.  Each division will be judged separately. For questions about the art show & poster contest please contact Sarah Gardner at agilelab10@gmail.com.

Divisions include: Cloverbuds: 5-7 years old, Juniors: 8-10 years old, Intermediates: 11-13 years old and Seniors: 14 to 18 years old.
