This program takes place in spring at Camp Shankitunk. Join youth from across the state for a weekend of forestry activities, games, and competition. This three-day event is for youth aged 10 and up (and staff and volunteers) interested in learning more about forests, and to select the NYS team that will go to the National 4-H Forestry Invitational (must be 14-19 for the national event).
The Forestry weekend activities include:
Tools for 4-H and Youth Educators to use to increase youth's exposure to Forests and Forest Careers
Rotating Tool Kits: We have 8 kits that can be borrowed for educational events around the state.
NYS 4-H Forestry Manual: Official guidebook for the NYS 4-H Forestry Weekend Competition
Curriculum Alignment with NYS Educational Standards: To help integrate forestry curriculum into your classroom- National 4-H Forest of Fun Curriculum Aligned with NYS Educational Standards
