4-H Exploration DaysExplor the Possibilities, 4-H Expo Days

Registration Information

Registration begins in Mid-March. Registration and payment must be submitted through your county MSU Extension office only. If you need to obtain contact information for your county MSUE 4-H staff,
visit: http://msue.anr.msu.edu/county/ and click on your county name. Registration through county MSUE offices is done to connect participants to their county 4-H staff since the local staff are responsible for scholarship allocation, identifying chaperones, making room assignments, and holding a pre-event orientation meeting.

Youth must be age 11 by January 1, of the year they wish to attend 4-H Exploration Days. As you select your session choices, be sure to watch for age restrictions! Age requirements for sessions are based on your age as of January 1 of the current year.

4-H Exploration Days registration goes from mid-March through April with session assignments made on a first-come, first-served basis. The deadline for returning your registration form to your county MSU Extension office can vary from county to county (typically the end of April), but don’t wait—some sessions fill quickly on a first-come, first-served basis.
