4-H Club Information
All 4-H activities are designed for learning by doing but they are also designed to be FUN!
What is a 4-H club and how do I join?
You may think 4-H is for children who live on farms. That was true in the past, but now there are 4-H clubs in every part of the country--in rural areas, in suburban neighborhoods and in cities! Boys and girls join 4-H because it provides opportunities to work and play with friends, to learn and do interesting things and to develop skills they will use for the rest of their lives.
When and where do 4-H clubs meet?
What do 4-H members do?
