Art Beat was created for 4-H members in grades 3-5 and their parents and leaders, 4-H Art Beat is the introductory program for Wisconsin 4-H Arts and Communication and is typically held in March at our State 4-H Camp, Upham Woods in the Wisconsin Dells. The weekend features a look at a variety of arts projects including music, drama, visual arts, art in nature, and more!  Camp begins Friday evening at 6:30 pm and ends Sunday morning at 11:00 am.

4-H members will explore their own creativity while discovering the great variety of 4-H Arts & Communication experiences available to them now and in the near future. Session leaders will be 4-H older youth, adult leaders and 4-H staff members with a wealth of experience to share. Youth and adult participants will rotate through a variety of  sessions which are hands-on and active and held at various sites throughout camp, including outdoors.   Both youth and adult participants stay in the cabins on cabin hill. Parents are not required to attend, but are invited. Adult applicants please note:  All adults will be considered Adult Advisors (chaperones) for the camp – if you are not already an active 4-H volunteer you must complete the requirements to become one before camp – contact your county UW-Extension 4-H Office for assistance.  Please do so as soon as possible to allow enough time to complete the required training and for a background check to be completed before camp.

The registration fee (both youth and adults must pay the registration fee) will include all materials and supplies, overnight lodging, meals and snacks.  Why not get a whole carload of youth and adults together from your county for some genuine 4-H bonding time?  Transportation is NOT provided by the State 4-H Office.
