Summer Programming 2020

Dear 4-H Families,

On April 2, 2020, Michigan State University made the decision to modify or suspend youth events scheduled to take place this summer on MSU’s campus. This, combined with the suspension of in-person K-12 instruction for the remainder of the academic year, informed changes to scheduled MSU Extension youth programming. As a result, all on-campus MSU youth events scheduled to occur before September 1, 2020 will be modified to an online space, postponed or cancelled. In addition, no face-to-face MSU Extension youth events or programs will take place anywhere in the state until September 1, 2020. This was a heartbreaking decision for MSU Extension to make but is a reflection of our ongoing commitment to youth safety and security, a guiding principle of Michigan 4-H, and the right thing to do to protect the health and wellbeing of MSU Extension staff, volunteers, program participants and all Michiganders.

 MSU Extension remains committed to delivering meaningful experiences to youth through supplemental education offerings that support the educational development of Michigan youth. We encourage you to visit the Remote Learning and Resources space to view the ever-growing list of online programs and resources.

 Thank you for your continued interest in Michigan 4-H programming and for your support and understanding of our efforts to protect participant health. If you have any specific questions or concerns not addressed above, please do not hesitate to contact Kathy George, 4-H Program Coordinator at
