4-H Summer Conference

Summer Conference is an opportunity for youth grades 7-12 to travel to Corvallis, explore campus life, make new friends, learn, and have a lot of fun. While here, participants attend workshops on a wide variety of subjects. Over 80 classes are offered including dog agility, a logging site tour, animal anatomy, fly fishing, origami, and etiquette.

In addition to attending workshops, participants will hear a nationally acclaimed speaker, participate in a Community Service project, and enjoy many fun activities such as a pool party and dance.

Members arrive on campus early Wednesday afternoon, either through their own transportation or on the summer conference charter buses, then stay in a campus dorm and eat at a dining hall. The conference is capped off with a closing program Saturday morning where new state ambassadors and national congress delegates are announced.

Questions about Summer Conference can be directed to Roberta Lundeberg.

Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Summer Conference has been cancelled. Please plan to join us in 2021.


Are you missing Summer Conference?  Watch these five videos produced by John Beede specifically for Oregon 4-H. Mr. Beede has twice been our keynote speaker at Summer Conference and received rave reviews. These videos address different aspects of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.  As one of our state ambassadors said, “the videos are no replacement for his amazing presentations at Summer Conference, but I think that his infectious positivity is really important right now.”
