4-H and Youth
Calvert County 4-H
4-H clubs are located throughout Calvert County for youths between the ages of 8 and 18. 4-Hers 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, basic computer skills and robotics.
