Join 4-H as a Cloverbud
What are Cloverbuds?
Youth who are five through seven years of age on or before December 31st of the 4-H year may enroll in 4-H as a Cloverbud.
How to Join
The first step in becoming a 4-H Cloverbud is to choose a club that is right for you. Contact a local 4-H Club Leader to see if there is room in an existing club near you. If not, several young people with an adult or two to help them may start a new club.
For a list of clubs organized in Adams County please see our current Club Guide.
Many clubs offer Cloverbud activities, ask your club leader what activities they have planned for the upcoming 4-H enrollment year. Leaders have materials that are available through State 4-H office, the material can be used in a manner which best suits their club setting. Leaders may also choose other material available through the Adams County Extension agent. Parents may also use Cloverbud materials that are offered through the Adams County Extension Office, they are available for free download on the Cloverbud Resource page.
Enrolling your child with the 4-H Office in Adams County completes the membership process. The 4-H program is offered at a very nominal annual fee ($40/member) by Colorado State University Extension in Adams County. Enrollments for new members are due by April 1st. Existing Members must turn in enrollments by February 1st.
Have Fun! The mission of 4-H is to help children grow into healthy, productive, successful adults. This mission is accomplished through involvement of parents, volunteer leaders, and other adults who organize and conduct fun educational experiences in community and family settings.
