4-H at The Haunt






This page is for 4-H families volunteering to help with The Haunt Fundraiser. Additional information will be added as it becomes available. 

Calling all Ozaukee 4-Hers!  It’s our largest annual FUNdraiser…THE HAUNT!  Youth & adults are needed to work various jobs/shifts.   Your volunteer hours count towards your club’s profits from the Haunt, and the rest of the proceeds support countywide activities & experiences for Ozaukee County 4-H youth!  There are also college scholarships for youth who consistently work at The Haunt through their 4-H career.

It’s a great way to raise funds, meet new people and have fun! Check the list below for various opportunities. They’re waiting for you….Mwah-ha-ha-ha!!!
