4-H Clubs

Clubs are the foundation of the 4-H program. A 4-H club is a group of five or more youth guided by one or more adult volunteer leaders. Organized 4-H Clubs are offered to youth in grades K-13 and consist of 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 rules approved by the membership to govern the club. Standard 4-H clubs involve youth in grades 4-13 and focus on in-depth learning of one or more projects.

4-H Cloverbud clubs provide youth, grades K-3, with an introduction to 4-H. The 4-H Cloverbud Program is designed to provide youth with age-appropriate experiential learning activities in a small club setting. These youth may be registered members of a 4-H Cloverbud club or in a standard club with assigned, registered volunteers trained in the 4-H Cloverbud Philosophy and curriculum. This program, in the tradition of the Prep Program, will remain non-competitive. The 4-H Cloverbud Program is a nationally recognized program for younger 4-H members.

Standard clubs may focus on one or two specific projects (i.e.; horse, marine science, food & nutrition) or be considered a 'community club,' which includes several youth working on a variety of projects. Below is a list of Burlington County 4-H Clubs and a brief description of each club. For more information about any of the clubs or to learn how to start a new 4-H club, please call the Burlington County 4-H office at (609) 265-5052 or e-mail 4-Hyouth@co.burlington.nj.us.
