Camden County 4-H Youth and Development Program

What Is 4-H?

4-H is an Educational Youth Program focusing on the needs, interests and concerns of young people. Our aim is to help Camden youth gain a positive self-concept, develop social skills and decision-making abilities, and learn subject knowledge needed for a productive life. 4-H members develop leadership and citizenship skills through individual project work, group activities, community service and school meetings. We are the youth division of the University of Georgia Cooperative Extension. 4-H began as corn and tomato clubs, but has evolved to become the largest youth organization in the world.

Who Is Eligible?

Any youth ages 9-19 may join 4-H. However, we do have some programs to include younger children.

When Are 4-H Meetings?

We meet with the 5th grade 4-H'ers once a month in the classroom at each of the 9 elementary schools. We meet with the 2 middle schools after school and with the high school in the evening.

How Much Does it Cost?

There is no charge to join 4-H. Some optional activities may have a small charge.
