Middlesex county 4-h camp
Stop by the cooler in the staic building and see the effort and creativity of our youth.
Department Chair: Steve Hansen For this area, youth create miniature event celebrations in "Teddy Bear Picnic", 3-dimensional "How To" exhibits explaining a particular craft or hobby, or proper and elegant table settings complete with menu and decor to match their imagined environment.
We also have a mini horse division (in-hand) where 4H members that have horses under 12 hands perform some of the above classes by leading their projects from the ground on a lead rope.
Department Chair: Dee Raftery The Pocket Pets Department holds two days of events at the Middlesex 4-H Fair, on Friday and Saturday.
In the collections of bright oil paintings and lively pencil sketches and exquisite block prints the viewer can't help but find something they wish were on the wall in their home.
Classes are both English & Western style and include Gymkhana (games class), Equitation (flat classes), Jumping, Dressage, Trail, and 4-H Fitting and Showmanship.The 4-Her's show their ability to care for, compete with, and have fun with their horses as they campout for the weekend overnight on the grounds.The highlight for these 4-H members year, is to compete in our 3 day Fair Horse Show (Friday-Sunday).The cat show takes place on Sunday morning from 10 a.m. Cats are judged earlier in the morning on appearance and personality.Cat owners are judged on fitting and showmanship (how well they handle their animals and how knowledgeable they are about them).
