4-H Youth Development
The main goal of our 4-H and Youth Development program is to provide engaging learning opportunities for the youth in our county, while also promoting self-achievement, self-confidence, responsibility and leadership skills. By offering quality programs, we are helping our youth acquire skills that can be used in 4-H and beyond.
We also work with other UI Extension county offices and community volunteers to hold two youth summer camps, the sixth grade forestry tour and the CL2N 4-H camp each year.
Youth ages 5-18 years old (as of Jan. 1) are eligible to participate in 4-H programs. Participants ages 8 to 18 can take part in a wide variety of projects, leadership and citizenship activities — including competitive events.
The 4-H Cloverbud program is designed for youth ages 5-7 years old and focuses on non-competitive, group learning experiences.
Enrollment for 4-H programs opens Oct. 1 every year. There is a fee of $12 for regular 4-H members and $8 for Cloverbud members. These fees go towards paying the 4-H state participation fee, individual member insurance and curriculum materials.
