Sussex County 4-H
Cloverbud Clubs

A 4-H club consists of members of an organized group of youth, led by an adult, with a planned program that is carried on throughout all or most of the year. 4-H clubs may meet in any location and typically have elected officers and a set of rules approved by the membership to govern the club. Standard 4-H clubs involve youth in grades 4-13 and focus on in-depth learning of one or more projects. 4-H Cloverbud clubs provide youth, grades 1-3, with an introduction to 4-H in a non-competitive environment. 4-H clubs might meet in the community, in schools during school hours, as well as in school age child care settings after school.

A child can belong to a Cloverbud club if he or she is in first, second or third grade. The September in which the child enters fourth grade, he or she can join a standard 4-H club, usually a project or community club. 4-H Cloverbud clubs are similar to standard clubs in that they meet regularly and are led by adult volunteer club leaders. Most Cloverbud clubs have approximately five to eight members per leader and meet about twice each month. Some clubs elect or select officers and change them several times a year so that each member has the chance to serve in more than one office. 4-H Cloverbud clubs are different from standard clubs in that Cloverbud members do not select one or two specific projects to work on during the year. Instead, they participate in a variety of short term activities in many different subject areas.

Listed below are the 4-H Cloverbud clubs in Sussex County. We hope to have more information from clubs posted shortly.

If you are interested in joining or volunteering with any of these clubs, please contact the Sussex 4-H Office, 973-948-3040 or email, Dave Foord (foord@rce.rutgers.edu)
