Calvert County 4-H, University of Maryland Extension


4-H clubs are located throughout Calvert County for youths between the ages of 5 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, citizenship skills and robotics. A 4-Her may take on any project, and most clubs have members in a wide variety of projects.

Clover Club programs are open to all children ages 5-7. Clovers do NOT complete projects nor do Record Books. In addition, they do NOT exhibit animals in their 4-H activities. Clovers are invited to create scrapbooks about their 4-H involvement.
