4-H and Youth

Calvert County 4-H4-H Clover

4-H clubs are located throughout Calvert County for youths between the ages of 8 and 18. 4-H'ers learn life skills and leadership development through a variety of 4-H projects like leadership, livestock and horse care, pet care, nutrition, clothing design and construction, and basic computer skills. Although a 4-H'er may take on any project, some clubs specialize in a project area. Clover Club programs are open to all children ages 5-7. Contact the UME-Calvert 4-H office for more information about the 4-H clubs near you (listed below) or becoming a 4-H volunteer.
