The 4H associations of the Capital Region (Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa) provide young people between the ages of 7 to 28 with opportunities to engage in various activities, learn new skills and gradually develop their working life skills and abilities.
4H is an international network of youth organizations operating in more than 50 countries worldwide. We believe that young people are the drivers of change. This is why we think it is pivotal to provide youth with opportunities for positive self-development. 4H currently reaches 7 million of these changemakers around the globe.
Hobbies and camps
Pks4H organizes versatile camp and hobby activities for 6-13-year-old children. Pks4H offers the children of the capital region the opportunity for a sustainable lifestyle. In 4H-activities, the children gain skills, e.g. food education, manual and craft skills and environmental skills and build their knowledge of a sustainable and appreciative relationship with nature.
In summer, Pks4H organizes camps and visits in three animal yards: Skata (Helsinki), Katrineberg (Vantaa) and Glims (Espoo). The animal yards become homes for sheep, goats, rabbits and chicken during the summer months.
