How to Join The Adventure
Welcome to the UC 4-H Yolo Community Adventure!
The "UC 4-H Yolo Community Adventure" is a fun filled county-wide challenge for children and adults. We hope to get more people outside enjoying what is available during the COVID-19 pandemic. Here you will find interactive activities that promote learning in science, math, engineering, health, nutrition, literacy, art and physical activity at locations throughout the county.
You can choose your adventure by finding the activity location:
- address on the list
- on the map
- by using GPS coordinates
Once you have selected your adventure, go to the location, and hunt for a sign that looks like this:
Scan the QR code on the sign and you will be given your challenge! Alternatively, if you do not have a smart phone available, click the link on the left that says "No Smart Phone" to go directly to the activity instructions.
Once you have scanned the QR code, you will be taken directly to the directions for the activity. There will be three levels of challenges to choose from, Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced. These challenges are appropriate for preschoolers to adults. Once you have completed the challenge, leave a comment about your experience and try a new adventure!
