4-H is a “learn by doing” youth educational program for five to 19-year-olds. Clatsop County 4-H has over 400 members. We provide many learning opportunities, including club-based learning, after school activities, camps, retreats, overnight events, leadership opportunities and workshops. 

The program is coordinated by two OSU staff and 150 volunteers from around the county. Together we teach essential life, leadership and technical skills.

What is 4-H?

With more than 6 million members, 4-H is the largest out-of-school youth program in the United States. 4-H empowers young people with hands-on learning experiences to help them grow and thrive. By creating a safe and welcoming environment, young people develop the skills needed to make a positive impact on the world around them.
