Club Information

The Howard County 4-H Program has a wide variety of clubs that meet in various locations across the county.  The traditional age 4-H clubs are for youth between the ages of 8-18 as of January 1st.  Clover 4-H clubs offerr programming to youth between the ages of 5-7 as of January 1st.

How do I find a club?

Below you will find the list of clubs, the club organizational leader and email address.  It is recommended that you contact the club leader to let them know you would like to attend their next meeting and to verify the meeting date, time and place.

Visit a few club meetings from different clubs to help you decide which club seems like a good club for you/your child.  When you are ready to join, talk with the club leader about joining their club.  The club organizational leader will have all of the necessary paperwork that needs to be completed to join 4-H.  A youth needs to attend a club meeting in order to join the Howard County 4-H program.

Youth can join 4-H anytime during the year, however, if they would like to participate in the Howard County Fair, they need to be enrolled as a member by June 1st of the current year.

If you have any questions please contact, 4-H Administrative Assistant, Amy Brueckmann at 410-313-1906 or amyb@umd.edu (link sends e-mail).
