4-H Cloverbud Camp

This is a fun, safe and educational camp all about healthy living for children 5-8 years old.

Cloverbuds (Ages 5-8)

cloverbudsOur youngest 4-H’ers aren’t quite ready to participate in many of the project areas and/or activities that their older brothers and sisters can, but there’s still plenty for them to do in 4-H, starting with fun!

The emphasis is on participation, learning and teamwork, not competition. They might learn about nutrition while helping to prepare simple snacks, plant seeds and learn what to do to help them grow, or help with animal grooming and feeding (with supervision).

Cloverbuds also provide opportunities for older youth to mentor and help a younger 4-H’er be successful, and start laying the groundwork for their future “career” as a 4-H member.

With Cloverbuds, safety comes first, and all of the activities are developmentally appropriate for this age group.

To learn about Cloverbud participation opportunities in your area, contact your closest MSU Extension office.
