Although virtual activity clubs are new to Maryland 4-H, they will still contain all of the elements that have given Maryland 4-H its rich 100+ year history: hands-on learning, connections with peers and caring adults, and an inclusive, safe environment.

Maryland 4-H Virtual Activity Clubs are free for all current Maryland 4-H members.  

Not a 4-H member? Not a problem! One of our Virtual Activity Club Leaders will contact you to enroll. The one time annual $10.00 enrollment fee gives you access to a full year of fun and enriching activities and events!
