Welcome to 4-H in Tompkins County! All youth activities offered by Tompkins County Cornell Cooperative Extension fall under the 4-H umbrella, whether they happen after school, in the summer, or as a workshop, club, camp, or special event. 4-H programs are offered in a wide variety of formats and places because they're designed to fit the interests and needs of the diverse young people who live in our rural and urban communities. Over 4,000 young people aged 5 to 19 take part in 4-H activities in Tompkins County each year. The Tompkins County 4-H Program includes 4-H Clubs, 4-H Urban Outreach Programs, Rural Youth Services, and Primitive Pursuits.
We offer outdoor wilderness education programs for youth and adults, and a summer camp at Cornell's Arnot Forest. Learn more here!
There are lots of ways that adult volunteers can have an impact on the life of a young person in 4-H! Apply today to be a 4-H volunteer!
Cornell University student volunteers provide youth in Freeville mobile home parks with mentoring, games, crafts, outdoor activities, and field trips.
