What is 4-H?

The 4-H program begins at the club level. Our 4-H members, parents, and leaders meet monthly to have fun, learn and work together in project groups, club activities, special interest groups and many events.

The 4-H experience offers many opportunities. Summer and winter camps, cross country trips, national science day and participating at the county fair is just some of the events your youth can look forward to in 4-H. There is also a variety of projects that they can learn or expand their knowledge in including: horse, photography, shooting sports, art, communications, theater and
more!

4-H is an informal program though which parents, other adults, and youth can help young people develop confidence, social skills, decision-making abilities, and subject matter knowledge.

4-H is for everybody regardless of their ethnic background, race, creed, or disability.

Why get involved?

Through 4-H, members develop and practice important life skills. Members will:

  • Make decisions and solve problems
