Discover Yourself in 4-H

News & Announcements

We are celebrating the contributions and rich history of the Oregon 4-H Center on Saturday, September 8th. There will be a program and BBQ lunch followed by optional camp tours. All former and current 4-H campers, counselors, families and staff are encouraged register by August 17th!

4-H is America's largest youth development organization serving over 6 million youth annually. Benton County 4-H serves over 3,000 youth annually through community clubs, school programs and summer activities.

Youth collaborate with caring adult mentors to lead hands-on projects in areas like science, health, agriculture and citizenship. This experience grows leaders with life skills like confidence, independence, resilience and compassion.

4-H is open to all 5-19 year olds. Youth aged 5-8 are eligible to join the non-competitive Cloverbud program. The 4-H motto is "To make the best better" and its slogan is "Learn by doing".
