Young people ages 5-18 can be a part of 4-H in various ways. Children (ages 5-7) can join the fun and learning by becoming a Cloverbud. Youth (ages 8-18) can join a Club and come to one of our 4-H Camps. Children and youth may also be involved in programs and activities held at their school or afterschool program. County 4-H programs also offer summer day camps and there are opportunities for youth to be involved as an individuals.
Cloverbuds is for children ages 5-7
The Cloverbud program is for groups of children who want to have fun-learning and playing together! They explore science activities, strengthen their motor skills by doing art and crafts, and learn to make friends through working and learning together.
The 4-H Club program is for youth ages 8-18.
4-H Members can choose from more than 50 projects that focus on science, engineering and technology, animals and agriculture, food & nutrition, outdoor adventures, marine science, public speaking, art and wildlife. 4-H learning is experiential- where youth learn lifeskills and use their skills to give back to their communities. Youth set goals and keep records and they can participate in events and activities on a county, state and national level to keep their learning strong.
