Central Sandhills 4-H

Christmas is a wonderful time of year to sit down and celebrate the end of another momentous year and the holidays with our loved ones. In my family, we love to gather around a table full of food with our holiday tradition of oyster stew and chili on Christmas Eve. Christmas day, the family will come over, bringing with them desserts and salads, usually all old family recipes that have been enjoyed year after year. Food is a tradition that brings us together for every holiday or big event in our lives.

This opportunity is designed for youth to highlight work they are doing in human development through leading experiences for other young people. These experiences may be through their role as a camp counselor, intern or teens as teacher, workshop teacher, babysitter or day care employee, junior leader, or simply as an older 4-H member coaching those younger in their club or project area.

 Youth are highly encouraged to apply on their own behalf but they may also be nominated.

June 5-9

Get ready for a week of epic adventure! We’ll explore the modern wilderness of Nebraska on horseback and by foot with a hike through the trees you’ve learned to identify while searching for tracks of native wildlife. We’ll also travel to the Agate Fossil Beds and explore what animals existed in prehistoric Nebraska 23 million years ago! Test your aim with an archery challenge course in the morning and cool off in the afternoon with a trip down the Super Slide!

November is here and with it comes Veterans Day. The 11th day of November is dedicated to all veterans who have served their country honorably during war or peacetime. One of the four Hs in 4-H stands for hands, and as some may know we 4-Hers pledge our hands to service. Service is something near and dear to many of our hearts. We respect and honor the sacrifices our military, firefighters, EMTS, and police make every day to keep us safe. Our 4-H program honors these people with programs like the Quilts of Valor.


As the weather gets cooler, we are all thinking about the perfect fall hats, sweaters, and comfortable clothes to wear to football games or just snuggling up on the couch. Sometimes it can be hard to find the perfect hat to buy or the perfect outfit. Nothing matches your vision! So... Why not make it? With 4-H, youth can learn how to sew, knit, and crochet their favorite clothing items.
