Virtual Project Camp contains a smorgasbord of fun-filled virtual presentations to help 4-H'ers build their skills and jumpstart their projects for county fair. It is a virtual list of workshops for all ages  of youth to continue to be involved in 4-H without face-to-face contact. There are a wide range of lesson for both boys and girls and are free to anyone including non-4-H members.

Looking for summer learning opportunities you can do from home? We’ve got you covered! Nebraska 4-H is excited to share our upcoming summer virtual learning opportunities with you. All experiences provide hands-on, virtually guided activities! We’re kicking off our summer sessions on Monday, June 1, with a new Boredom Buster Challenge and our first Virtual 4-H Camp. Family Fun Night and Living Room Learning are also starting! Plus, Virtual Field Trips and the 4-H Clover Fun Pack provide additional ways for youth to learn from home.

The Nebraska 4-H Online Horticulture Judging Contest provides youth an opportunity to test their knowledge of growing fruits, vegetables, flowers, and ornamental plants. The contest is open to all youth, as well as adults.

Stress happens to all of us and it's normal to feel overwhelmed, especially during tough times. If you feel anxious or depressed, you're not alone. Your neighbor, friend or family member may also be struggling and could use your support. Staying Connected During Tough Times is a list of available resources.
