Enrichment for schools and after-school programs
About Adams County 4-H Enrichment Programs
Adams County offers a variety of programs that combine the 4-H model of experiential learning with educational standards. All our programs are adaptable to elementary, middle, and high school aged youth. These programs fit easily into educators’ scheduled curriculum, are engaging, and are either free or low cost.
