4-H and Youth Programs
What is 4-H & how do I get involved?
More than 6.5 million young people across America make friends and have fun while learning leadership, citizenship, and life skills each year through 4-H programs. Sponsored by land-grant universities, 4-H activities focus on healthy living, citizenship, and science, engineering and technology.
Bannock County youth can experience 4-H by becoming a member of a 4-H club, attending Alpine 4-H camp, participating in a project camp, or in after-school 4-H programs. You might nurture an animal, hone cooking or sewing skills, learn photography, go on hikes, or build a robot to compete in local, state, or national events.

4-H Clubs, Each One is Different
Members and leaders decide what their 4-H club does. 4-H clubs usually focus on one or more topics. They conduct project-related activities. Examples: A gardening club may maintain a year-round garden; a horse club may practice riding at meetings. Clubs also do community service, both in their project area and where they are needed.
Also, although most activities are free, some fees are charged to pay for materials. If you have questions stop by our office, call, or e-mail us.
