Cloverbud Program

The Cloverbud program is an educational program designed for children in the 5K-2nd grade.  Cloverbud events are open to both 4-H and community youth.  The main goal of the Cloverbud program is to provide a welcoming, safe, and hands-on experience that promotes children’s healthy development, represented in the 4 H’s: HEAD, HEART, HANDS, and HEALTH.  The delivery of the Cloverbud program maybe through a project offering within a 4-H club, in a day camp, through county-level programming, or in a sponsored partnership with an afterschool or community-based program.

Annually the Cloverbud program consists of four events that take place from January through April that are open to all Cloverbud youth in Jackson County, and to non-4-Hers as well.  These events change each year.  We ask that individuals register for the events, as it is appreciated, but it is not required.  Registering for the events helps us plan appropriately for supplies and snacks.

The Cloverbud program also hosts a day camp for Cloverbud age youth in the summer every year.
