Park County 4-H

Life’s little questions aren’t meant to be answered alone. Join 4-H, the club of families who share in teaching kids practical things like pet care, growing gardens or horseback riding, and important values like responsibility. Whether you’re in the city or boonies, join 4-H and we’ll tackle life’s little questions together.

4-H is a youth development program that uses project based experiences to teach our youth real life skills to prepare them to become positive members in their communities and world.  Its motto is “To Make the Best Better” and we always strive to create greater successes with each child in each project.

4-H members join and choose projects they are interested in.  These projects vary from Rocketry and Robotics to Entomology (bugs, insects, etc.) and Sheep.  Then members become part of a club that meets regularly to conduct business which allows the youth to be a part of a full functioning group.  Within their club they perform community service, give presentations and run meetings with parliamentary procedure.  In their clubs or during project meetings they learn about their chosen projects and in hands on experiences create a finished project by the end of the year.  These finished projects, whether they are a market weight sheep or a walking robot, are displayed and judged at county fair.  Throughout this process youth gain numerous skills that include responsibility, record keeping, and perseverance.
