4-H Youth Development
4-H is a national youth development program designed for youth ages 8-18. More than 6.5 million young people across America make friends and have fun while learning leadership, citizenship and life skills through 4-H programs.
4-H activities focus on healthy living, citizenship and science, engineering and technology. Youth in Bannock County can become a member of a 4-H club, attend the Alpine 4-H camp and participate in a project camp or in after-school 4-H programs.
Clubs usually focus on one or more topics and conduct project-related activities. Examples include a gardening club that may maintain a year-round garden or a horse club that may practice riding at meetings.
Clubs also participate in community service, both in their project area and where they are needed.

Alpine 4-H Camp
The Alpine 4-H Camp has served the youth of southeast Idaho for over sixty years, giving them the experience of going to camp and enjoying the beauties of the area. If you are interested in attending our 4-H Camp or the 4-H Horse Camp, please contact our office.
Horse and Livestock
4-H horse and livestock projects teach youth the principals of animal science. With each project, youth can learn up-to-date industry standards of breeding, feeding and management practices. Participants also develop public speaking skills, decision making skills, integrity, sportsmanship and leadership.
