4-H Summer Camp
4-H Summer Camp provides an opportunity for 4-H members across Saskatchewan to meet in a safe, fun, and inclusive environment. Summer camp allows members ages nine and up to attend as either a counsellor or camper, and these members will be able to participate in programming based around the four 4-H pillars while having the opportunity to make new friends, develop self-confidence, and build teamwork, leadership, and decision-making skills. By focusing on hands-on learning programs, participants will “Learn to Do By Doing” and increase their knowledge of 4-H, agriculture, their community, and much more.
Public Speaking is a proud 4-H tradition that allows members to share a persuasive, informative, or entertaining self-authored speech on a topic of their choice, developing self-confidence and communication skills!
4-H clubs across the province will host their own club public speaking days, with the top place speakers having the opportunity to advance on to districts, regionals, and provincial levels of competition.
4-H Curling is a great opportunity for 4-H members to get out, be active and have fun! It starts with a District Curling Competition. Teams can then advance to Regional Curling and Provincial Curling. More information about curling can be found under 4-H Resources.

Leaderama is a one-day event, held in two locations in the province on the same day. This event goes out to the regions to connect with members and leaders in the later part of the year.

Symposium is a one day hands on clinic that aims to provide beef members, and those interested in the beef industry, with practical, hands-on experience and learning in areas related to preparing and showing beef cattle, beef production, health and nutrition, and safe animal handling.
Sessions have included judging, grooming, clipping, marketing, and genetics. This event helps to aid in the development of farm management knowledge and skills of youth, which will ensure a brighter future for the beef industry in Saskatchewan.
Judging is an important life skill that teaches the process of evaluation and how to identify important characteristics that can improve quality in an item or animal. Judging can be fun and challenging, but it can also be very rewarding.
Many livestock clubs, districts or regions organize judging clinics throughout the year, where members learn how to judge a class of animals or items, as well as how to present their choices. Also, many agricultural societies and exhibition associations offer livestock judging competitions to members.
