Explore UMass takes place on the flagship campus in Amherst, June 23-25. This conference is open to 4-H’ers ages 12–16, or in grades 7–11, for the 2018–2019 school year. Participants will stay in the dorms, eat in the dining commons, and get a taste of what life is like as a student living on the UMass campus. Have fun participating in workshops and recreational activities while meeting other youth from across the state.
Explore UMass now offers two full days of tracks. Back by popular demand is the Veterinary Science track which will be offered on both Monday and Tuesday. Sign up early to get your first choice of workshops as the popular tracks fill up quickly! Since this is a leadership opportunity to showcase 4-H on our home campus of UMass Amherst we are encouraging all participants to wear their 4-H tee shirts and have a new dress code to promote this. See the Dress Guidelines for details.
Registration begins at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 23, with program activities kicking off at 3:00 pm. The program ends at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, June 25, and all youth must be picked up promptly.
