The academy is being offered to youth ages 7 and up.

Each session will cost $50.00 for the five mornings.  Individuals may register for one session per week.  Each week will include unique offerings so you may want to sign up for more than one week.  New 4-H members will also have a 4-H insurance and enrollment fee of $27.00 to cover the academy.  This fee can be used towards the annual 4-H membership of $54.00 if you decide to also participate in other 4-H activities, Clubs, or Camps.
