Alpine 4-H Camp
All Teton County youth, especially our 4-H Club participants, are encouraged to attend our annual camp each June in Alpine, Wyoming. Applications to attend camp are typically due in early June. Please contact us for details.
4-H is open year-round to youth ages 5 to 18 without regard to race, creed, gender, marital status, handicaps or disadvantages, economic or ethnic backgrounds.
Participants ages 8 to 18 are eligible for all 4-H programs, including competitive activities and events. Ages 5 to 7 are eligible to participate in Cloverbuds.
Individuals older than 18 who have special needs are eligible if they are still enrolled in high school.
4-H age is the age of the individual on Jan. 1 of the current 4-H year (which runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30).
Individuals can enroll at any time, but are encouraged to enroll between Oct. 1 and Dec. 1 so they can fully participate in all activities and events for that year.
