Lancaster County 4-H Clubs

Lancaster County 4-H
Club Opportunities

4-H Clubs: Members of an organized group of youth, led by an adult, with a planned program that is carried on throughout all or most of the year. 4-H clubs may meet in any location and typically have elected officers and a set of bylaws approved by the membership to govern the club. Standard 4-H clubs involve youth, ages 5-19, and focus on in depth learning of one or more projects. 4-H cloverbud clubs provide youth, ages 5-8, with an introduction to 4-H in a non-competitive environment. 4-H clubs might meet in the community, on military installations, in schools during school hours, as well as in school age child care settings after school.
