Cloverbuds

4-H Cloverbuds is a unique program that helps build confident kids. Specially designed for youngsters ages five through seven, the program gets kids excited about learning! 4-H Cloverbuds use hands-on-learning activities to help kids explore art, plants and animals, science, and the environment. Youngsters also engage in group activities that promote personal development, healthy lifestyles, and a sense of citizenship. As a Cloverbud member, your child will attend fun-filled meetings that include a learning activity, recreation period, and snack time. Trained Cloverbud parent volunteers lead the meetings. Cloverbud curriculum is based on sound child development principles and factual subject matter information.

Participating in 4-H as a Cloverbud can help your child develop these critical life skills:

  • Develop self understanding and confidence in a relaxed setting
  • Achieve success in learning and feel a positive sense of accomplishment
  • Learn how to get along with others and communicate in positive ways
  • Learn how to share, work together, compromise, and resolve conflict
  • Make new friends
