UConn’s 4-H: Branching Into Forestry

Thursday, July 19 @ 10 am-

Trees! They’re everywhere! They give us shade, places to hang swings, and build treehouses, and hiding spots for hide-and-go-seek. But did you know that we get so much more from trees and our forests? Kids will learn all about the wonderful things trees provide for us and how we can grow better trees for our future.

 

 

Musical Chairs Competition

Tuesday, July 24 @ 6:30 pm 

This event is sure to keep kids and young adults rockin’ and rollin’ as we play musical chairs in a tournament style. Each round will have a different musical theme and the last one standing gets a prize!

Suitable for all ages (age groups will be separated to keep the game fair.)

 

 

 

 

 

Music Trivia Night

Lip Sync Battle

Here is a chance to perform just like a rock star!
