4-H Clubs in Clay County

linkingarmsclover4-H Community Clubs

What Does a 4-H Club Do?


A 4-H club elects its own officers and conducts its own business.  Most clubs meet monthly with a year-long plan for their programs.  Each meeting usually includes presentations by members.  Meetings might also include presentations by leaders, parents, or a resource person, recreation or indoor games, a family sharing night, or a field trip.


Many 4-H clubs also get involved in a variety of community service, social and fundraising projects.  The youth in each club should decide the types of projects their club will do.


The Iowa 4-H Youth Development Program is available to all persons regardless of race, color, gender, disability, or national origin.  All 4-H clubs comply with this requirement by completing a 4-H Compliance Report and keeping it on file at the County Extension Office.

May I join two or more 4-H clubs?

Yes, you may join more than one club in Clay County.  Youth may join a special interest club like the shooting sports club or the fishing club and be a member of a community club.  You may also belong to two community clubs.


Only one annual 4-H fee is required per 4-H’er, regardless of the number of clubs that the 4-H’er joins.  Countywide accident insurance with American Income Life Insurance Company covers 4-H members attending regularly approved and adult supervised 4-H group activities.


If you have questions about joining multiple clubs or about the 4-H fee, contact the Clay County Extension Office at 712-262-2264.
