Home / Virtual Senior Member’s Summit

In compliance with the restrictions official announcement made by Alberta Health Services on April 24, 2020, 4-H Alberta has made the decision to suspend all in-person activities and events until Wednesday, September 30, 2020. This also means that all in person summer camps, shows and competitions, and programs have been suspended and will not be delivered in their traditional manner

How does 4-H Alberta programs impact the 4-H youth?  We have available for your to review the impact report on Senior Member Programs.

Are you looking for a fun and unique learning experience that will connect you with 4-H members across Alberta? The Senior Members’ Virtual Summit combines online and offline activities that will keep you engaged while connecting you with members across Alberta. You will have the chance to reconnect with old friends as well as fashion new friendships while focusing on personal development and growth.

This summer 4-H Alberta has created an all new program for senior members across the province.

The Senior Members’ Virtual Summit is a program committed to promoting personal growth and development. The program will be delivered online via Zoom and a program website filled with pre-curated content. Each day there will be scheduled video conference calls that stimulate conversations with other 4-H members and facilitators across Alberta similar to our traditional in-person camps. With a focus on Growth and Development, each day will have an overarching topic that aims to cultivate thought and build a knowledge base of skills that will prove beneficial for many years to come. Topics that will be covered include: Healthy Eating, Budgeting, Stress Management, Mindfulness, Communications, Personal Identity and Teamwork.

This summer program is tailored to be fun and memorable and while it may look different than camps you’ve attended in the past, it has the same goal as other 4-H programming: connect 4-H members across Alberta and facilitate friendships all while promoting growth, development and learning.
