City Kids and Country Kids
4-H is for all kinds of kids – whether you live in the country or the city, Oconto County’s 4-H Program has a project for you. 4-H projects are topics that each member chooses to learn more about during the year. Project leaders help youth develop in their chosen areas with meetings and project materials. 4-H Programs are open to youth between kindergarten and one year following high school graduation.
4-H is open to everyone regardless of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, ancestry, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, marital or parental status. 4-H is a family affair where youth and adults get together to learn new things, meet new friends and have fun.
The 4-H Community Club
Each 4-H member belongs to a 4-H club in the community. Community clubs meet once per month. Through club membership, 4-H members learn how to cooperate with others, how to make decisions as a group and how to be effective leaders. Click here to see a list of the 4-H Clubs in Oconto County.
Once you choose a club, there are many ways for the family and member to get involved.
Club opportunities include:
- Monthly meetings with activities
- Seasonal activities
- Community Service
- Club Officer Positions (President, Vice-President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Reporter)
What Does It Cost?
4-H clubs may charge dues – this decision is made by members of the club. Project materials, such as fabric, wood, food, pet supplies, etc., are obtained by the members.
