Join A Clinton County 4-H Club

What’s 4-H?

4-H is a youth development program for youth in fourth through twelfth 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.

The four 4-H delivery modes include:

·         Clubs:  There are thirteen 4-H Community Clubs and five Clover Kids Clubs in Clinton County.
·         Camps:  Junior Camp; Intermediate Camp; Clover Woods Camp; Youth Conference; and more!
·         Schools:  Manufacturing Day and STEM Day
·         Events:  Clinton County Fair Club Show;  4-H Basketball Tournament; Fire Up and Recognition; Legislative Day; and many more!

How can my child become a 4-H Member?

2.      If your child would like to join, you will notify the Club Leader and they will give you a New Member 4-H Enrollment packet to complete by the December 1st registration deadline.  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 both enrolled in the 4hOnline Program and have paid their dues. Each club will provide a Yearly Club Plan to their members before the December 1st meeting, so that families can plan for the fun activities ahead. More information may be found at
