Join A Clinton County 4-H Club

What’s 4-H?

4-H is a youth development program for youth in 4-12th grade. 
4-H Mission: Empowering youth to reach their full potential through youth-adult partnerships and research-based experiences.
4-H Vision: Preparing Iowa’s youth to be successful, contributing members of society. 
The Iowa 4-H program’s four program priorities – STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), Healthy Living, Citizenship and Leadership, and Communication and the Arts – align with the goals of the Clinton County 4-H Youth Development Program and Iowa State University Extension and Outreach.

Reasonable Accommodation Resources.

The four 4-H delivery modes include:

  • Afterschool Programs: partnerships with schools
  • Clubs:  There are eleven 4-H Clubs and six Clover Kids Clubs in Clinton County
  • Camps:  Junior Camp; Intermediate Camp; Winter Plunge Camp, Youth Conference; and more!
  • Schools:  Manufacturing Day, STEM Day, Ricochet, Real Money. Real World
  • Events:  Clinton County Fair Club Show, 4-H Basketball Tournament, Fire Up, Recognition Night, and many more!

How can my child become a 4-H Member?

  1. First, it is recommended that parents and their children attend club meeting as guests to learn more about the club and what plans they have for the year. There are ten Community 4-H Clubs and one Special Interest (SPIN) 4-H Club in Clinton County. 
  2. If your child would like to join a club, please visit to enroll. Or you can contact the Clinton County Extension and Outreach Office at 563-659-5125 or There is a 1:10 youth to adult ratio for membership, so there is a maximum number of youth who may join.  Members are not considered active until they have submitted BOTH the online enrollment and payment (checks payable to Clinton County Extension) to their Extension Office. Each club will provide a Yearly Club Program to their members before the December 1st meeting, so that families can plan for the fun activities ahead.
