4-H Forestry Weekend

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:

  • Tree identification
  • Tree measurements
  • Compass usage
  • Map reading
  • Insects and diseases
  • Geocaching
  • Nature games
  • Night hikes and more
