Alberta Intermediate AIM Camp

August 2017 – Edmonton
Two Manitobans (aged 12-14) will join 4-H Alberta members at this conference
(Registration fee: $300)
What interests you and what are you most passionate about? You can choose the type of skill sessions that you want to participate in while at AIM. Then, over the course of six days, you’ll dive right in, each session helping you to discover what motivates you and further ignites your passion. Find out what makes you dig deeper and reach further than you ever imagined you could. Doing things at AIM like forging your own path to discovery, figuring out how to navigate the low ropes course, conquering a life-sized board game or deciding how to spend your free time are all things which make every camper’s AIM experience unique and special. Come to AIM and get just as much out of it as you put into it.

4-H Canada Members Forum 2016

November 2-6, 2016 – Toronto
Eight Manitobans will participate as part of 70 Canadian delegates
(Registration fee: $300)
Join the 4-H Canada Members Forum and you can be guaranteed a challenging but rewarding experience and lots of new life-long friends. The Forum theme will fall under the Environment and Health Living Leadership pillar – healthy spaces and bodies are important ingredients when developing our skills. Delegates will be challenged to think big, think small and commit to a healthy lifestyle, learn how to best care for yourself and others, make informed choices and listen to your heart. From touring Toronto to spending an afternoon at the Royal Winter Fair, there will be no shortage of things to explore with your fellow 4-H delegates.

 

Alberta Senior Members’ Conference

January 27-29, 2017 – Edmonton
Two Manitobans (aged 15-20) will join 4-H Alberta members at this conference
(Registration fee: $300)
This weekend will give senior 4-H members the chance to meet and connect with fellow 4-H’ers from across Alberta who are in the exact same position you are – they are preparing to transition into life after high-school. Whether headed off to post-secondary, to start a career or embark on a trip, you probably don’t really know what to expect or how you are going to balance it all. Speakers, sessions and activities, chosen and designed with input from Alberta’s Ambassadors who themselves have just completed that phase of their life, will leave you feeling better equipped for what lies ahead. Plus, you’ll have a whole network of new friends to lean on throughout the process.

March 25 – 30, 2017 – Washington, DC

The USA National 4-H Conference (www.4-h.org/4-h-conference/) is the premiere civic engagement opportunity for 4-H members across the USA and its territories, as well as for 4-H participants from the global movement. Members will not only learn while at the conference, they will have the opportunity to apply their newly developed and refined skills. As a delegate, you will choose an important societal topic and, in round table groups, prepare a formal briefing. During the conference, the groups present their briefing to federal officials around the Washington, D.C. area.
In addition to the conference activities, 4-H Canada delegates also have a chance to tour Washington and visit some of the nation’s famous cultural and political sites, including the Lincoln Memorial and Capitol Hill.
