4-H Cloverbuds are the youngest participants in the 4-H club program. They are enthusiastic, curious, creative, young people who are growing rapidly physically, socially and emotionally. The 4-H Cloverbud program encourages children to have fun, develop friendships, and learn about their world. These youth are in the 5-8 year old age range.







The 4-H Cloverbud program provides youth with opportunities to:

  • Develop self-understanding, social skills, decision-making skills and physical skills
  • Gain knowledge in the sciences, literature, and the arts through hands-on learning processes
  • Develop on-going relationships with caring adults and older youth who serve as positive role models
  • Explore family and community relationships
  • Develop an understanding of and appreciation for social and cultural diversity

Cloverbud 4-H Clubs:

  • Open to all youth in Benton County

  • Must have at least two 4-H trained adult leaders
  • Meet 1-2 times per month
