The Outdoor Adventure program is designed to get youth excited about spending time outdoors. It is our hope that the program promotes opportunities for youth to explore and learn about their natural environment through different avenues. Events are typically scheduled during the third weekend of every month throughout the year. See below for the tentative schedule for this year. To participate in any of these events or get more information, contact Christina Hall.
Another outdoor related offering is the Shooting Sports program. Chenango County 4-H Shooting Sports is a program that gives local youth an opportunity to learn about various shooting disciplines, currently archery and air rifle, while encouraging safe shooting practices and environmental stewardship. Following 4-H’s “Learn by Doing” mantra, our youth get the opportunity to shoot at each practice, utilizing techniques and safety tips given by our instructors. Youth ages 9 and up are eligible to shoot. For more information about the Shooting Sports program and for meeting dates and times, contact us.
