 There are 4 steps to enrolling in 4-H:

The first step to joining the 4-H program is selecting a local club. Each club is unique depending on the club leader, families involved, most popular projects among club members, the size of the club, etc.

Consider the following: 

  • Location, day, & time the club meets
  • Does the club have support for at least some of the project areas you are interested in?
  • What is the club culture, size, and expectations?

To get started, review the club directory & identify 2-3 clubs that:

  • Are accepting new members
  • Meet at a day/time/location that work for you
  • Support projects you're interested in 

Contact those club leaders and ask to join a meeting to observe. We recommend observing at least 2 different club meetings before you choose a club. After you do so, select the club you would like to join & let the club leader know. 

Larimer County 4-H Club Directory

Look through the many projects Larimer County offers. You may choose one or more projects. Projects are fun to do alone and/or with your friends. Think about:

  • An interest you’d like to explore
  • A hobby you’d like to learn more about
  • A topic of interest shared by you and your family
  • Something that is fun for you

If you have questions about a project, each project page lists who you can contact.  You can also ask your club leader or other members in your club.
