4‑H programs suit a variety of interests, budgets and schedules. From in-school to after-school, camps to clubs, our 4‑H programs welcome all children who want to have fun, learn and grow. Based on their interests and guided by adult mentors, youth develop their own pathway in 4‑H. They select from a broad menu of local 4‑H programs. There are hands-on, learn-by-doing, opportunities for everyone.
