MORRISVILLE, N.Y. — The campus of Morrisville State College will be home to 4-H youth from across the state for a two-day event known as Equine and Dairy 101 4-H Camp. Youth truly get to experience the “life as a college student” while staying on campus in the dorms and attending “classes”. The camp will be held May 17th and 18th and is designed to give 4-H youth ages 13-19 a chance to learn more about the equine and dairy Industries, career options in the field and educational opportunities offered at the college. All sessions will be taught by Morrisville State College faculty and other professionals in the field of equine and dairy.
Hands-on classroom sessions and tours include topics like dairy cattle nutrition, producing quality milk, marketing and advertising for dairy students.
Equine students will be given the opportunity for hands activities through the English, Western, Draft and Racing tracts while focusing on horse show preparation, showmanship, breeding, equine nutrition and farrier science. Youth will have the opportunity to learn about career opportunities in equine and the importance of being an educated advocate for the industry.
Registration deadline is April 30th. The cost is $125 per 4-H Youth participant and includes food & lodging. Chaperone cost is $100. If you would like more information about the 4-H Dairy and Equine 101 event at Morrisville State College, please email Lisa Farney at firstname.lastname@example.org.
