DELTA COUNTY, Mich. (WZMQ) – Registration is open for an annual 4-H event at Michigan State University.
Michigan 4-H Exploration Days is open to students ages 12 to 19. Students stay on MSU’s campus from June 21 – 23.
Students can choose from more than 100 classes to take. Topics range from animal science and cooking to theater and shooting sports. Participants will also enjoy food and activities on campus, allowing them to get a taste of the college experience.
Dave Radloff, 4-H youth development educator for the Delta County MSU Extension, encourages students to register, even if they have never participated in a 4-H program before.
“It’s a great opportunity for 4-H members to explore the project area that they’re in and maybe get some training or some information on something that’s not available here in the Upper Peninsula,” said Radloff. “It’s also a good opportunity for kids who aren’t in 4-H to see all the wonderful things that we have to offer.”
While the total cost to register for Michigan 4-H Exploration Days is over $250. However, the Delta County 4-H Council is covering transportation costs, so youth affiliated with Delta County 4-H will only need to pay the $50 deposit fee. The Tractor Supply Paper Clover Campaign is covering additional registration fees. If an exceptionally large number of students register, Radloff says the MSU Extension may do some fundraising to help cover costs.
