Leavenworth County

Join the Club

Raising great kids is a challenging task, but it's easier when you have a team of people behind you. 4-H Clubs are groups of families that do just that. Through working together, families share knowledge and interests to help kids learn practical skills and important values. 4-H is the network of families that grows great kids.

Age For Membership

4-H membership is open to all boys and girls who are 7 years of age and have not passed their 19th birthday by January 1 of the current year.

Youth ages 5 and 6 can join as Cloverbuds.  This link provides great Cloverbud information but you still need to enroll online (no paper enrollment accepted).

When to Join

The 4-H program year runs from October - September, however youth can join any time during the year. Most 4-H'ers start in the fall to keep up on  project lessons, activities, and make themselves eligible for 4-H awards and activities that have deadline dates.

What does it cost to join 4-H?

There are no dues or fees for a 4-H Club member. Local clubs may develop their own methods of raising money for worthwhile activities. The cost to the boys and girls are determined by the projects he or she selects.

Where are the 4-H Clubs in Leavenworth County?

Leavenworth County has a number of community clubs and project clubs that meet at different times and places. We suggest you visit several clubs and find the one that best fits your family's schedule and interests.
