Cloverbuds general information
4-H Cloverbuds is open to any youth ages 5-7 years old as of January 1, 2018 and we’d like to invite new friends to come join in the fun of the 4-H Cloverbud program. The projects the kids work on are developmentally appropriate, activity-focused and built on cooperative learning. The primary difference between a 4-H Cloverbud activity and a 4-H Project area is that the member engages in varied activities with focus on developing a specific skill or concept utilized in completing the activity, rather than focusing on one project area and embarking on competition.
So let’s break it down as to what it means to be a 4-H Cloverbud members. As a Cloverbud member youth come together as one group and meet once a month for about 1 1/2 hours where as a group they learn about a specific topic area. The eight core areas are Science and Technology, Community Expressive Arts, Healthy Lifestyles, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Personal Development, Citizenship, Consumer Family Science, and Plants and Animals. Youth work together at learning more in-depth around these topics areas while they complete a hands-on project, interact with their friends, play a game or two, and more. At each meeting they will complete a project that they will exhibit at the Uinta County Fair but in a non-competitive environment. Members may also be involved in other activities such as youth have the opportunity to experience a day camp during the summer at the Meeks cabin youth camp. Or activities might include field trips, tours, hikes or community service activities planned by the club.
