Cape May Court House – Cape May County 4-H members are excited to celebrate National 4-H Week October 1 through October 7, 2023. This year’s theme is I Love 4-H.
4-H is a community of young people across America who learn leadership, citizenship, and life skills. Through 4-H participation, young people combine their interests with learning practical skills so they can make a positive difference in their own lives and in their communities. 4-H programs are offered in a variety of formats including both in-person and virtual clubs, conferences, competitions, camps, and much more.
Become a part of Cape May County 4-H! We offer nearly twenty-five 4-H clubs in a variety of topics for youth in kindergarten through one year out of high school. Many of them are currently accepting new members, such as the Growing Sprouts Cloverbud club for our youngest 4-H members in grades K-3rd, Lambs R Us 4-H Club, the Gaming Innovation Lab 4-H Club, the Get Your Brick On Lego 4-H Club, Kitchen Phanatics Culinary Arts 4-H Club, the Needle and Thread Sewing Club, and the Teen Ambassadors Club.
This year, National 4-H Week falls during the Tractor Supply Company (TSC) 4-H Paper Clover Fall Campaign (October 4th through the 15th). This national campaign raises funds for Cape May County 4-H Youth to participate in valuable national 4-H leadership experiences and state camping programs. If you are looking for fun, friendship, and new experiences, now is the perfect time to explore what 4-H has to offer. To start your 4-H adventure, visit our website capemay.njaes.rutgers.edu, find a club that sparks your interest, call the 4-H club leader, and then attend a meeting. “4-H is an exciting world of learning opportunities and new experiences including projects, friends, clubs, camps, conferences, and much more. 4-H is one of the best experiences your child and you can have!” said Linda Horner, Cape May County 4-H Program Coordinator
