The Fond du Lac County 4-H Horse and Pony Project Drill Team (a group of horses and riders performing choreographed maneuvers to music) produced many incredible performances during the 2022 FDL County Fair. The youth members created, practiced, and perfected their routine on horseback throughout May, June, and July for a stunning exhibition for the Fair-goers. There will be performances every day (except Sunday) of the 2023 FDL Fair.

Cloverbud Day Camp

Cloverbud Day Camp- Fun on the Farm was held at the Halbur Farm! We went on a farm walk, learned about sheep and chickens, made butter, and played farm games! All the kids had a great time!
The last Cloverbud Day Camp is outdoor survival held on August 17 at the UWO Fond du Lac Campus. Youth will be exploring the great outdoors using GPS tracking and making their own solar oven! If interested in registering for a future camp please, contact the office at 920-929-3171 or register through 4-H online at https://v2.4honline.com/.

Cardboard Camp- Cardboard City

Youth worked hard all week building Cardboard City.  Some city features included a barn, tractor, hospital, ambulance, apartment buildings, post office, airport, an airplane, and so much more.  During the last day, the youth completed a team challenge of building the tallest skyscraper. The creativity of the youth was amazing to see all week as well as them all working together to develop their Cardboard City.  Check out the Facebook page for more pictures of the week! Next year's Cardboard camp theme has not been determined.  If you are interested in being on the planning committee please reach out to Tracy.
