4-H Youth Development
4-H helps youth gain knowledge, develop life skills and form attitudes to become productive members of society. Research based programs give youth the hands-on, real world experience they need to become leaders.
Today's 4-H is for all youth between the ages of eight and 18 years. Kids between ages five and seven can join Cloverbuds, a non-competitive 4-H program.
- Cloverbuds are not allowed to participate in large animal or shooting sports projects.
To pay enrollment fees online, please visit: Idaho Payport.
- You may join anytime. However, to participate in the Elmore County Fair, you must be enrolled and have your fees paid by March 1.
There many 4-H clubs in Elmore County that focus on a wide range of projects, from woodworking to raising livestock. We have clubs in both Mountain Home and Glenns Ferry.
University of Idaho Extension in Elmore County invites youth to participate in a three day 4-H Cloverbud Camp. Our day camps are a great way to introduce your cloverbud* to 4-H. Elmore County 4-H is hosting a day camp in June in Mountain Home and another in August for Glenns Ferry.
- *Ages 5-7
Email Jami Davis for specific dates and details about our day camps.
Elmore County 4-H members can choose from many projects. Please visit the UI Extension 4-H Youth Development projects website to learn about the options.
