Teens in their freshman-junior year should save the dates for upcoming ExploreAg sessions. ExploreAg is open to students from varied backgrounds, with diverse skills and interests, and provides them with an opportunity to explore and understand available career paths in the agriculture and food industries.
ExploreAg will be hosting two one-week-long camp sessions:
- June 13-18 at Ohio State University Columbus campus
- June 20-25 at the Ohio State University ATI campus
ExploreAg also will be hosting three, three-day sessions over a weekend in July and September. Locations are to be determined but these events will be held on a university or college campus:
- July 9-11
- July 16-18
- Sept. 10-12
During the sessions, high school students will interact with and learn from internationally known teachers, scientists and researchers and visit labs, fields and factories to learn about career opportunities in food and agriculture and related industries.
Program costs, which include on-campus accommodations, meals, staffing, course supplies, program materials and transportation have been generously sponsored by the Ohio Farm Bureau Foundation as a part of its commitment to attracting young leaders to the agriculture industry.

Note: The goal is for all programming to be in person, however, programming is subject to cancellation or alteration based on the current COVID-19 guidelines and restrictions.
