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. Although a 4-Her 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.
