As group sizes in Manitoba are set to increase on Sunday, June 21, to 50 indoors and 100 outdoors (with social distancing), please click here for an updated copy of the In-Person Activity Event Approval form which must be completed and submitted to your Club Support Coordinator for approval prior to in-person programming taking place. Only the group size has changed, all other requirements remain the same.
Please remember that the COVID-19 Waiver form must be completed by every member family/leader prior to resuming participation in 4-H programming and returned to your Club Support Coordinator. Please click here for the waiver form.
As previously stated, resuming in-person 4-H activities is completely voluntary and 4-H members or leaders who are not comfortable participating in-person will not lose their year in 4-H due to Covid-19.
As we feel that everyone is ready to enjoy summer, Monday, June 22, will be the last time we post weekly 4-H At Home activities until the fall although we will continue to post occasional livestock items. We wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe summer.
