4-H also runs a summer camp. Limited weeks are available.

4-H is a youth development program with a focus on fun, where youngsters learn about projects that interest them, work with mentors, and participate in community service activities.

Club members work together on community service activities and usually concentrate on one or more projects or interests such as: Dogs, small animals, food and nutrition, go carts, space science and astronomy, model rocketry, twirling, sewing and crafts, livestock and animal science, nature and outdoor education, and science.

Members build leadership by electing officers and conducting their own business meetings under the guidance of one or more adult volunteer leaders. Clubs can be any size–from a small group of kids from one neighborhood to a larger club consisting of youth from all over the county.

All youth in grades K-13 (one year out of high school) are welcome to join 4-H wherever they live — on farms, in suburbs or cities. The clubs serve youth from all backgrounds and interests and offers membership without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, disability, or handicap. There is no membership fee.

Youth in grades K-3 are 4-H Cloverbud members, which is a noncompetitive learning experience. Teens have the opportunity to participate in special county, state, and national events.
