Thank you for your interest in the Adams County 4-H program!
4-H is an informal youth education program of Colorado State University Extension. 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 educational experiences in community and family settings.
The 4-H Club
Adams County 4-H is based on a club system. This means that when you join 4-H in Adams County you are joining one of our 4-H clubs. Clubs are made up of youth (4-H members) and adults, who serve as leaders. Clubs usually meet on a monthly basis, but some meet twice a month. The club is an opportunity for you to meet other 4-H members. When choosing a 4-H club it is important to make sure that the club meets the needs of your family — in terms of the day and time of the meetings, the club atmosphere, club requirements, etc. You want to make sure the club is a great fit for your family and that you feel welcome.
4-H is a learning and fun program for youth ages 5-18. It will provide youth with the opportunity to explore a variety of programs that teach them effective use of leisure time. There are over 60 different projects divided into more than 225 divisions. These divisions range from arts and crafts, photography, model rocketry, foods, clothing, gardening, wildlife, woodworking, to dog obedience, small animals, horses and livestock.
Youth who are five through seven years of age on or before December 31st may enroll in 4-H as a Cloverbud ($40.00/Member)
Youth who are eight years of age and have not reached their nineteenth birthday on or before December 31st may enroll in 4-H clubs and groups ($40.00/Member).
Adult volunteer leaders play an important role in the 4-H program. Volunteers coordinate local community clubs and help to plan and conduct local, regional, state and national 4-H events. There are no membership fees to be a 4-H Leader in Adams County.
