New Castle County 4-H Clubs & Programs

New Castle County is home to many 4-H clubs for youth ages 5-18. The clubs are located throughout the county. 4-H’ers learn life skills through a variety of 4-H projects like livestock and horses, pets, nutrition, clothing, photography, bicycle safety, woodworking and much more!

Although a 4-H’er may take any project, some clubs specialize in a project area.  Younger children ages 5-7 can get started in 4-H with Cloverbud clubs.
