The Clark County 4-H organization is reorganizing for the 2018-19 school year and we want to invite area youth to join in.
4-H is full of exciting opportunities for youth. There are over 80 different project areas to pick from which include things like ATV Safety, Creative Arts, Animal Science, Archaeology, Shooting Sports, Entomology and Bees, and Robotics.
With eleven 4-H clubs that meet throughout Clark County and over 150 members, you are sure to find a place to belong.
A few of the activities that were offered last year include Yoga for Kids classes, the giant pumpkin and watermelon contest, petting zoos, horse shows, Wildlife Habitat Education Programs, County, District, and State contests, District and State camps, county summer day camps, shooting sports, the poultry chain, science experiments, a poultry and rabbit workshop, ATV Safety classes, Rabies clinics, and a sewing camp.
